Which five words best describe you? Honest, caring, creative, hard-woring, gutsy.
How did you get your career start and what path have you taken since? It was really my third job that kickstarted my career. I was 22 and I had been working as a junior designer for a few years in both television and print. I met Nick Morgan who was the creative director of Moon Design. As soon as I went in to show him my folio I knew I wanted to work there. I called him every week for 6 months until he agreed to give me a foot in the door. It was only a week's freelance work so even though it had no certain future I declined another job offer and I have never looked back since. At Moon I learnt through osmosis the level that was needed to be a great designer. From there I became the art director at Marie Claire and I still continue to be an art director and designer, as well as being part owner and creative director in Apple&Bee.
