How are you finding working as part of The Creative Group so far?

Having only recently joined Creative Pod, I was met with a warm and incredibly helpful atmosphere, the entire team was just so inviting! Having come from a freelance background, agency life has its similarities however I’m enjoying learning the new processes and workflows. It’s just so awesome working collaboratively in such a linear way with talented like-minded people!

What’s your background?

I’m a music performance graduate from the Royal Welsh College of Music,Cardiff but throughout my studies my love for everything design helped financially maintain the student lifestyle. In my second year I started up as a freelance designer from my halls of residence room and gradually took on larger, more substantial projects. After a 5 year period of freelancing and consulting I delved into agency work and I’m incredibly excited about starting and progressing my digital design journey with Creative Pod!

I once shared a stage performing alongside Tim Minchin and some of the cast members from Harry Potter on stage at the London Old Vic!

Who are your biggest influences?

My biggest influence is my Nan, she constantly inspires me and continues to be an incredible role model.

What is your favourite quote?

There are so many quotes that I adore so just choosing a single one is quite tricky. If I was to choose the two which resonate with me most, they would be:

“You can't build a reputation on what you are going to do.”
- Henry Ford

“In order for the light of gratitude and happiness to shine so brightly, the darkness of how it could be worse must be present.”
- Danny DeVito
