With my roots firmly planted in the studies and practice of fine art and graphic design, I quickly found my passion for youth culture by hosting underground art shows in Cape Town and playing web curator by night as one half of an online skate mag.

My growing curiosity and understanding of the scene soon led me to a home with youth engagement specialists, Andpeople. Having joined the studio in its infancy and as their primary art director, my role quickly developed into leading up their design and content creation for several years on an exciting portfolio of international and youth-relevant brands. With them, I have been fortunate enough to have had my hand on everything from web development and spatial design to film treatments.

With a keen interest in the entrepreneurial spirit of South Africa, I have since joined Alliance Brands Limited as design director. With hands-on experience in building and growing our own portfolio of local and international brands, we also offer strategic brand development to others through consultations, brand re-positioning and creative project management. Our passion for making the world a cooler place is what makes us great to work with. 

Please feel free to get in touch for any projects, collaborations or just to connect.
