Hi, I’m Carl. I have a somewhat arty background and love anything conceptual or design orientated. I studied architecture back in the day and then made a move over to fine art. I’ve not been in the recruitment scene long but I have had some experience in the digital arena before joining Become. My key passion in recruitment is to find the best creative talent out there!
