Graphic Design, Web/UI Design, Production Artist.

I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree at Central College of Art in London, UK, where I studied Graphic Design under Bob Gill and Alan Fletcher of Fletcher/Forbes & Gill who were responsible for the coveted Pirelli calendar and Volkswagen’s worldwide ad campaigns.
