About me


For years now I have maintained a strong interest in both the media industry and illustration. Last year I started up my own clothing brand called 'Living Like This' as a project in my spare time. This has taught my both new Creative Suite skills and social media techniques. I am loving every second of the project that is still going strong to this date! More recently I have finally moved to London after saving for a year. I worked as an administrator for a photography supplies company called 'Silverprint' however they have moved location to Poole which is too far for me to commute so I am actively seeking new opportunities! I hope to use all the skills I have taught myself to go into marketing and start my career with a fantastic company. That is the dream! Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile, if you are able to help me reach my goals then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
