- About -

As a creatively minded individual, finding inventive solutions to problems, exploring how things work or are constructed and being inspired by other peoples talents are central to both my working and personal life. I’ve spent the last 12 years working within the art world; gaining experience in a wide variety of areas from concept to detail design, fabrication, manufacture, installation, planning, people management and logistics. This has given me well rounded experience, an in depth knowledge of the creative process and how that can that can be applied to good effect. I am responsive, adaptable and enjoy being presented with challenges that test the grey matter! Learning from and responding to others is fundamental to my methodology which gives me a great deal of satisfaction. The ability to listen and communicate succinctly is something that I take pride in and believe to be incredibly important to encourage in others. I’m always keen to add to the experiences and knowledge that I’ve gained, and share what I’ve learned. I am also comfortable with the more cloistered aspects of the creative process; finding periods of individual labour equally as important as discussion and combined thinking. I think it’s necessary to understand as many steps in the creative process as possible; as one inevitably informs the next. To me, this type of understanding provides a solid basis to assess the best way to move forward with practices, production and management.
