I’m a communications consultant and designer working with a wide range of organisations to help them express themselves.

I discovered Arabic calligraphy as a teenager and have loved it ever since. A few years ago I studied the Naskh style with Mustafa Ja’far in London. I’m a fan of the Ottoman masters like Sami Effendi, Hamid Aytaç and Necmettin Okyay as well as contemporary designers and calligraphers like Nja Mahdaoui.

For the last twenty years I’ve had a shadowy secondary career as a type designer, and now I’m ready to start to bring these interests together!
