To summarise a few of my achievements I have animated a short video for you to get a brief understanding of who I am in 1 minute and 12 seconds.

I began learning how to use Photoshop in 2013 at the age of 12. I remember seeing a picture online manipulated by a photographer. There were multiple clones of himself in the same room.
This blew me away and made me want to do the same thing to impress my friends. With no prior knowledge of Photoshop, I hopped on youtube and watched numerous tutorials on how to achieve a similar effect.
Albeit, I didn’t do this in preparation for my future, I did it because I enjoyed it, it was fun! Little did I know, I was picking up the the uses of each tool, discovering different techniques and developing a workflow.
I have always hated maths, but was always told I wouldn’t get anywhere without it by my teachers and superiors. Instead of revising it I would spend my time in my room watching photoshop tutorials on how to turn myself into a zombie.
Approaching my final months in college, all of my peers were either in university or beginning in the new year. I didn’t want to; I wanted to make it on my own by gaining experience from employment, not lecture halls.
The only problem with this ideology was, who would hire an 18 year old, with no degree or basic maths qualification? For a while; nobody.
I applied for design vacancies daily, refreshing the job sites through out my day to never miss an opportunity.
But days turned into weeks and weeks turned into months. With no progress being made I began to wonder if everyone was right about needing maths and a degree, was I too ambitious?
It wasn’t until Sunday the 12th of January 2020 I saw a vacancy for a Junior Graphic Designer at Rayburn Tours. The role was for recent graduates but this didn’t stop me from writing me an email anyway and Im glad it didn’t. Two interviews and a live brief later I was hired and began the first step in my career.
