About Me
Based in the south-east of England, I’m a journalist, book designer, and typographer. I really don’t like moths and can tie my shoelaces really well. I dream of someone paying me to watch Korean dramas and/or Pitch Perfect all day. I also dream about losing my car and I don’t know why.

If there is anything with which I can help you (not shoelaces) don’t hesitate to get in touch. ︎︎︎
