Freelance Web Designer

After working as the lead designer at a marketing agency in Brighton & Hove for five years, I became a freelance web designer in 2011 and setup Design Superheroes.

Over the years, I’ve had the fortune to work with a wide range of clients, from one person start-ups to household, global brands. I like to form strong, long-lasting relationships with my clients and help them evolve their businesses as they grow.

Originally from a branding and print design background, my areas of expertise have become web design, user interface (UI) design and Shopify e-commerce website design and development.

Outside of work, you’ll find me cooking, eating out, throwing pots or bouldering.
