With nearly 10 years of experience working across magazine titles such as ICON, OnOffice, Courier, C20, and Opto, I have honed my ability to connect initial content ideas and translate stories into elegant and engaging visuals that resonate with readers. I am skilled in managing projects from conception to the final printed page and have a keen eye for typography, layout, colour, and grid structures in print magazines.

Throughout my career, I have built and maintained relationships with a range of creatives, including photographers, illustrators, retouchers, designers, developers, and editorial teams. This has allowed me to consistently deliver exceptional content that exceeds client expectations.

I am a collaborative leader who values clear communication and maintaining strong relationships with both team members and clients.
