I am interested in narratives in both comics and graphic novels. My work uses traditional media and is inspired by my personal reflection on life. The common theme that runs through all of my works is a desire to connect and communicate at an emotional level with the reader.

My project ‘The Con’ envisages a dystopian future where individuals are manipulated through the exploitation of personal data through algorithms which are able to predict individual’s and society’s needs and desires. The narrative is intended as a warning to society of a possible future if personal data is not protected and respected.
