Working in various fields of the design industry for the past 5 years, I bring together experience from tech, startup and agency backgrounds. Working with brands like Apple, SoundCloud, Lexus, Cointreau and Red Bull, I gear my ambitions towards improving the visual communication of brands and identities. Looking for originality in every project, I believe in creating engaging, modern and compelling visuals that share a simple goal: to improve the value of every brand I work with.
