About me

A conscientious events professional who excels at planning, marketing and executing high-level events. I have previously worked at LSE (delivering the events programme for Europe's largest Summer School), and The Guardian (as an Assistant Events Producer). I am now seeking new projects and am excited to discuss how we can work effectively together to achieve results. I have a thirst for knowledge, a fascination with psychology and curiosity for all things tech.
