From working with the Grip department on The Matrix to collaborating with best-selling author and philosopher Simon Critchley on “Critchley and Simmons” musical projects, my career to date has been exciting and diverse. My work is creatively-focused, be it graphic (design, motion graphics, branding, photography, web development) or musical (composing or playing) - or a combination of all the above.
