I'm a 22 years old Geography graduate that since finishing school has wanted to see the world. In order to fund these adventures I've held different positions in a variety of industries; including property management, events, catering and even a fine arts auction house. These roles have included completing personal projects such as managing property portfolios, whilst also more creative aspects such assisting in the photography and design for brochures and booklets. Having just returned from 6 months abroad, I now want to settle into a more permanent position in order to lay down the foundations of a future career. With a particular interest in music, consumer culture and photography I am looking for experience/an internship that could fulfil my ambition. Since my blog and website is still being built, why not take a look at what I got up to over the last 6 months by following the link? note: photos taken by iPhoneLocked Pro Plan feature
