I grew up surrounded by knowledge and creativity. My parents owned a screen and sign printing company for over 25 years where I assisted them on projects from an early age.
They taught me essential skills in business, various art mediums, and graphics.
One of the perks for having such creative parents was the endless supply of creative tools and materials. In my younger years, I entered the annual Unwearable Art Competition. This would involve making clothing out of anything but clothing. The competition would give me the opportunity to get as creative as my tools would let me and having a workshop filled with wire, expanding foam, vinyl, clay, and an airbrush, it was the perfect place.
In 2006 I started my interior design course in Christchurch, New Zealand and continued to work in design roles for over 7 years. I had a short career break and spent time working in the Perth mines driving 150-tonne dump trucks.
In 2013 I moved to London to further my design skills, starting with kitchen design. Being exposed to various design fields, I felt the need to build on my knowledge and skills. I transferred my skills and started working as a freelancer in film, theatre, television, festivals and events.
