Background: I am a South African born self developed multidisciplinary designer, developer and illustrator who began drawing at the age of 4... (and I am yet to stop.) Originally drawing inspiration from comic book art and vintage animation from an early age, I went on to study Graphic Design at the University of Johannesburg, graduating with a BTech Degree in 2008.

|| PHILOSOPHY

I am profoundly involved in the whole process from the very first idea at the beginning to the final result. The most important thing for me is to talk to clients on many subjects to do a good job. I am a hard working person, self motivated and ambitious to learn more. My skills lay in advertising, branding, photography, illustration, social media and web/mobile development. My focus is to deliver successful creative solutions in a perfect way through the whole process to create something unique.
