Get In TouchGet To know Me

Welcome to my personal website & portfolio

This site should give you a brief snapshot of who I am, some experiences I’ve had, and a few of the things I’ve worked on. Have a look around, discover more about me and let’s connect together!

Here’s a quick overview about me – I’m a final year MSc student in Digital Marketing and Corporate Communications with a minors degree in Strategy & Experience Design. Also a “side-hustling” freelance web-designer, marketer, and occasional gigging musician. I’m people-centric, always looking for the connection of things. I love Jazz, exploring environments, and gaming – when possible. I have a prospective outlook and seek to find where I can provide value to businesses and people.

I worked with Matthew on various jazz-related web projects in the past, along with his help to work on client projects. Primarily used him because of his attitude to a work ethic I admired. Not one to quit anything he has a passion for adding to his dose of detail he adds to tasks or projects. I’d happily recommend him for his digital mindset with a proactive customer-centric approach to his native thinking. I’ll be working with him again soon on many new projects we have lined up.
