I am a British freelance graphic designer and amateur landscape/travel photographer, currently based in Switzerland. In 2010 I graduated from the University of the West of England in Bristol with a BA Hons degree in graphic design, and before that I graduated from the International School of Kenya in Nairobi where I completed the International Baccalaureate.

Although I've recently been living in Europe, I have grown up around the world as a 'Third Culture Kid'A Third Culture Kid (TCK) is a person who has spent a significant part of his or her developmental years outside the parents' culture. The TCK frequently builds relationships to all of the cultures, while not having full ownership in any. having lived in 8 countries so far (Tanzania, Botswana, Haiti, England, New Zealand, Mozambique, Kenya and Switzerland), with most of that time being spent in Eastern and Southern Africa. As a result I love travelling to new places, experiencing new cultures and seeing new things which I like to try and capture in my photos and design work.

When I'm not taking photos, I mainly design Geocoins (a trackable coin used in the global game of Geocaching), though also occasionally do other freelance design work. I have a good knowledge of Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom and Illustrator, and also have a bit of experience with Adobe Premiere, After Effects and some web design. If you have any questions about my work or want to license my images or order prints, please send me a message.
