About me

I specialise in art direction, branding, website+app design, print design and logo design, but my main goal is to conceptualise, design and deliver great products, brands and experiences for my clients.

I enjoy working with people passionate about what they do -- whether it be creating a new brand, developing a new digital product, streamlining a customer experience, or trying to determine which problem to solve.

I co-founded Tadaku (, a platform for cultural exchange through home-based cooking parties, which was acquired by Gaiax in 2015.

Nice to meet you! :-)
