About me

Meticulous in my approach, and zealous enough to get results. Skilled in establishing and nurturing relationships, the management spectrum goes between commercial and high-end fashion. Swift with problem solving and never without a word that will encourage a team. Experienced in travelling overseas to discover new talent for development, and negotiating terms that are favourable to all parties.
