About Me

Throughout my career I have helped create and maintain strong relationships for a variety of stakeholders including my own clients, employers, and third party suppliers. For example, I have produced materials for bcreative, Commercial Arts Training College, BP and 9 major national real estate companies throughout Australia. In addition, I have had a variety of local, regional and interstate clients. 

I have been using Adobe Creative Cloud in my current employment and freelance work. By keeping in touch with industry trends, I have maintained a current knowledge of ‘best practices’ in design which has given me a creative edge in designing effective marketing campaigns, developing brands and sub-brands, brochures, signage, web sites, publications, manuals, guidelines, program guides, student handbooks and advertisements. I believe my program knowledge of the main programs (Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Dreamweaver and Flash) is second to none and my design experience is without compromise.
