About me

I was born to a British mother and a Czech father in France, where I grew up and spent most of my life in a multi-cultural environment. I studied in Strasbourg (France), Liège (Belgium) and Edinburgh where I graduated in July 2016. Music, graphic and performing arts are my cup of tea. I love discovering new cultural scenes and expressing myself. Playing the guitar, singing and photography are all a great part of my life. I believe that advertising and PR's power to grasp people's attention becomes positive when it promotes culture and enhances our open-mindedness. This is what I am determined to dedicate my career to. Please, do get in touch if you have any questions regarding my work, experience, availabilities or simply if you'd like to say "Bonjour !"
