Aerial Filmmaker & Photographer
Over the years I have developed a mix of skills across design, advertising, illustration, DM and identity.
I have 13 years of experience and have worked in various agencies including Leith:Tangible, Barkers, Ignition and Denvir, and have provided freelance expertise for the best studios in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle. I also teach on the award winning creative program at Edinburgh Napier University, and have worked with a wide range of clients, from banks to beers, charities to cheeses and everything in between.
I am always working to improve my creative techniques, fundamental art direction and design skills and software proficiency. I believe you can never learn too much and can always get better.
I have developed a commercially effective and successful portfolio of projects, and have enjoyed success in The Scottish Creative Awards, Marketing Star Awards, the Kelpies Design and Illustration Awards and the International Dream Awards.
I am available for freelance work in your offices, or remotely from mine.
