About

I’m creative by nature and have always loved art and design from an early age. I achieved an ‘A’ in honors Art and History at leaving certificate. I graduated in Graphic Design at Cork Institute of Technology in 1996 and was finalist in national apprentice competition at Bolton Street in the same year.

 

I enjoy everything digital and how clever design can add value to a project. I work well within a team and also independently. I have worked in eLearning and design agency roles in Dublin and abroad.

 

I also enjoy animation, video and I have recently studied background art for animation.
