Brief Summary
I’ve been a professional Designer / Finished Artist / Creative Artworker for over 10 years with a background in various industries. I have a strong knowledge of print and a passion for seeking out varied applications of design for work and pleasure.

Print might be a personal favorite but digital is still fun. I regularly create files for digital developers here and overseas.  

I pride myself on having excellent time management skills, being adaptable, friendly and professional.

Professional Experience
Mar ‘11 to Present
McCann Health / Craft / McCann Sydney
Finished Artist/Creative Artworker
New company but same seat. Craft is essentially a new initiative in productions values for McCann and McCann Health. All the studios, print, digital and TV, are now able to use each others capabilities to ensure the best product can be produced.
The McCann studio is more streamlined, yet little has changed as I'm still responsible for all printed material for HealthCare. But now, my capabilities can be used throughout the network, not just here for Healthcare.
Day to day I'm sometimes traffic, sometimes studio manager. All press, packaging and DM, webpage and app and interactive pdfs for tablets.
