    Im an award winning third year graphic design student at the Cambridge School of Arts, but this isnt what makes me stand out. I stand out because Ive shown the ability and the tenacity to take on over several clients on a freelance basis.

    This real experience has enabled me to actively connect my education with real, live projects, which not only has developed my graphic design skills but also helped me gain valuable client management skills.

    Im a focused, self-motivating individual with a strong work ethic. I always approach every assignment with passion, enthusiasm and focus which has been recognised through my YCN Student Award (http://education.ycnonline.com/student/) for my work on the Graze Competition Brief.

    As a digital native Ive excelled in using complex design packages. My education and endless hours of experimenting now mean Im confident and proficient in the Adobe Creative Suites,

    particularly InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator.

    Outside the world of design Im a big fan of extreme sports and Im proud to say that I have worked with a few big names within the industry already (Identiti Bikes, Halo Wheels & TSG). I know where Im going, Im seeking to secure a position to build the foundation of my career within a sports organisation where I can not only bring my graphic design knowledge, but to also develop my current skill set further.

    Although I am training to be a graphic designer I have had other part-time and full time jobs. But my main focus has been freelance jobs to help me get a headstart of what it will be like to work with clients in the working world.

    Freelance Graphic DesignerJanuary 2009 - Present-While begining my Foundation Degree in Graphic Design at UCMK I took it upon myself to gain work and a client base to give me that extra knowledge of working with proper clients when it came to finishing

    my degree.

    Stockroom Assistant (Argos)November 2010 - January 2011 (Christmas temp)-When working at Argos as a Christmas temp I joined the stockroom team which involved me collecting items and delivering them to the store front as quick as possible. This required serious concentration when retrieving the item as the stock room was so large. I also worked on the collection counter dealing with customers and any help they might need.

    Assembly Engineer (Pericom PLC)May 2008 - August 2008-For this job I was assembling electronic rateboards that can be found in a number of places such as HSBC and Post Office. The job required a lot of patience

    and concentration, along with a lot of teamwork to meet the large target that we had been given. In 2 months we produced 800 working rateboards. With this large target and short deadline I found myself working very hard and determined to meet the deadline. I also worked extra hours to complete the order.

    Red Bull Racing (School Work Experience)February 2007-When working at the famous Red Bull Racing factory for my school work experience I participated in a number of different activities and jobs. My main job

    during the week was to final check parts that were

    going to be sent out to the Formula 1 race. This required an eye for detail to spot any marks or weaknesses of the car part. I was also introduced to the work of carbon fibre. After learning how parts

    were made I was offered the chance to produce my own

    part without assistance. I jumped at the chance and made myself a Formula 1 car nose cap which I currently still have.

    This project was to create a multi-page document on any subject of our choice. The only requirement was it had to be a minimum of 12 page spreads. As I travel a lot to the Lake District with my parents and my girlfriend and her family I thought it would be really cool to document some of my walks and show people the journeys I go on. This is how I came to create a photographic journal.

    This was my entry for the national design competition held by YCN (ycnonline.com). There were a number of briefs to choose and I chose the Graze brief where I was to redesign the logo, redesign their box and create a direct mailer campaign. I was one of a few to be commended for my work and will be in the 2011/12 YCN Awards annual.

    My book stoked. is my final major project from my foundation degree course. Being

    a local photographer at Woburn Jump spot I wanted to encompass the atmosphere and skills of the riders there in a book. The book was made not only to appeal to those who are aware of the sport of dirt jumping but also to those unaware and gauge their interest in it which it seemed I achieved on the night of our exhibition.

    stoked.

    As well as graphic design I am an avid photographer. I like to try and integrate them both together in my course projects and utilise my skills. I have had my images used by various companies in the biking world such as TSG and Identiti Bikes.
