Hello!

My years of experience in the performative arts has allowed me gain skills in several different disciplines from foam carving to stitching up historical garments, all my skills allow me to problem solve creatively with a unique and open minded point of view. I've worked on projects big and small for organizations from around the world, such as Mattel, BBC, Warner Bros, Wales National Opera, National Theatre Wales, MineCraft and more.  Feel free to say hello by emailing me at contact@joearagondesign.com
