From an early age, I became aware of the importance of crafts and smart design, my dad being a tailor. Design is not only my profession but also one of my passions. Over the past few years, I have spent a great amount of time working on diverse projects with many different people. My time is now divided between commissioned and personal projects. Type design, branding and editorial design are my areas of expertise. If you have an idea that needs to be developed, share it with me. I can help bring it to life.
