About me

I believe my strong background in events production, management and marketing is a key value for the next challenge I'm about to run. For the past 10 years I have learnt how to successfully run large-scale events like music festivals and concerts, as well as fashion shows and exhibitions, and create a retail concept store of womenswear. From curation to marketing, promotion, production and coordination on site as well as administration and budget management. I am focused and determined, and know how to work to a high standard in order to create memorable experiences for both costumers, public and teams involved. Besides my skills I have a strong passion for both fashion and culture and I would love to bring my experience in my new team.
