ABOUT ME

I have a combined 8 years industry experience in marketing, graphic design & photography.

Status: I am the founder of No More Ugly Camera Bags, an online store with a mission to rid the world of ugly one thing at a time. I’m currently busy with a contract at BVN Architecture as the Digital Publishing Lead and working with freelance clients. I’ve completed my studies in UX Design at Interaction Design Foundation and looking to synthesize what I’ve learnt in the past 8 years into new opportunities.

I started my career in marketing after completing a Bachelor of Business in 2010. I then completed a certification in Graphic Design to satisfy my craving for creativity. I’ve been in the design industry ever since. My interest in photography has also given me opportunities to work with clients across different industries, helping them create all-round content strategy for their businesses since 2015.

In 2013 I started No More Ugly, an online store with a mission to rid the world of ugly one thing at a time. My first mission was to rid the world of ugly camera bags. I’ve deliberately diversified my career to always keep learning.

I’m excited by good design, human-centred strategy, sustainability and solving problems that positively impact the world.

I believe in the integration of business and design when solving problems.

I am learning more about a Circular Design Economy and how to apply this to the future of innovation.
