About me
I am an enthusiastic, self-motivated professional with a passion for working in the digital world. I have always regarded myself as a deeply creative person and am eager to represent this through the work I produce - whether it be writing, film, audio or photography. When I graduate from my master's degree in 2021 I plan to work in the media industry, helping to create inspiring content for new audiences.
