About me
I believe that storytelling and culture have the power to create a positive impact on people and society. I love using creative thinking and good writing to bring brands to life in a meaningful way. I am creative and curious, travel, art and food obsessed, a keen maker, an avid reader and deeply interested in social innovation, 'good' business and social enterprise.

    As Rawthmells Events and Programme Manager my role was to establish and produce a dynamic programme for The RSA’s new 21st century enlightenment coffeehouse. The vision for the space was as a place where people could come together, connect, collaborate and discover great ideas to overcome the challenges facing our society. It was conceived as a hub for anyone interested in social change. I started working at The RSA before the coffeehouse opened in October 2018 and developed a regular programme of events, a rotating scheme for inspiring project displays and ad-hoc activity in the coffeehouse, to spark conversation, creativity, collaboration and action.
