Thanks for dropping by! Below you'll find a short summary of who I am, what I do and how we can work together.  

I'm a Melbourne based Designer that specialises in Custom Typography and Lettering. I hold a qualification in Communication Design from RMIT University and have completed the intensive Typography course at Abbotsford's Old School New School. 

I grew up on the leafy Mornington Peninsula, drawing everything around me, writing stories and crafting homemade books. To this day I am a big believer in all things handcrafted and pride myself on beginning all projects by hand. I fell in love with letters during my second year of university and have since explored several styles of handcrafted Typography. My current specialisations are Script Lettering, Brush Lettering and Monoline Lettering - however I'm known to dabble in some Calligraphy and Type Design too. 

I'm currently freelancing as a Lettering artist, joyfully creating expressive, custom Typography every day. When I'm not working on freelance projects, I teach Lettering workshops, experiment with personal work and alternate between making the most of Melbourne's epic food scene and taking road trips to The Dandenong's for a sketch in the sun.
