                                   creative, creator, daydreamer,  and in the face of deadlines
                                 visual artist, digital manipulator,
                                  a cat, two goldfish, a home, I pay taxes.
                                 i have tattoos. Unconventional – yes. i breathe colour,
                                  for typography, for bold lines and daring design. i get a kick out of composition
                                 think in shapes and when I design, it’s love that moves my hand love for the aesthetic,
                                  and get goosebumps when I see visual harmony emerge on paper or pixel.
                                 i live to design and design to live.  What inspires me? Life, love,
                                 smiles, drinking coffee, modernity, clean lines borne of clever thought,
                                  from manga, music, movies, a colour swatch to the shapes
                                 art, illustrations, good food, great typography. Everything inspires,
                   MAC            the box. Break it down, turn it inside out and upside down
                                 a life less complicated and complemented by design that echoes such.
                                 of trees, birds on a wire.My ideas stem from simplicity
                                 I don’t just design, I create.  I think out of the box, I rethink
                                  so that at the end of it, it’s not a box but whatever it is
                                  you want it to be.   Life’s short, live it with
                                   endless love and reckless abandon.
