About me

 

After my Master’s in English Literature, I began a career in advertising, and then transitioned into the sphere of magazine journalism. After completeing several long- term internships, in the summer of 2015, I took a hiatus to compete in two inter-national triathlons, build content for my website (which is a re-imagining of the woman’s glossy magazine), and begin researching for my PhD. I also spent some time in Paris while doing this to perfect my French, learn about coding, and tutor English on the side. Throughout, I have maintained my blog on the Huffington Post, in which I write about fashion, lifestyle and culture. My ambition is, eventually, to complete a PhD in my chosen field of literature (paramnesia, dreams and the French Surrealists), but I suspect I will not embark on this for a couple of years. I now seek a job that is connected to art and/or fashion, and which preferably involves writing and research,
