In the future I would like to study Civil Engineering at University. This is due to my interest in graphics, design and engineering.

I am now studying Advanced Higher Graphic Communication which is giving me the skills I need to independently complete a large project. I am currently working to create Preliminary, Production and Promotional graphics for my own brief.
