I am a  graphic designer who has been employed in the higher education sector for eight years. I enjoy the challenge of conceptualizing and creating print and digital designs for clients.  I am an amateur photographer and enjoy photographing family, flora, landscapes, and action shots.  In my spare time I create personalized children books and photography albums, and I am currently researching my family ancestry and creating a genealogy album.
