About me

I trained as a photographer (BA Hons Photography, London College of Communication, University of the Arts London), and I have experience in the photography studios at Liberty London and John Lewis. Lately, I have been working front of house for Victoria Miro Gallery in London. I also completed an internship at VMG in Exhibitions, where I completed various research, writing and proofreading tasks on behalf of the gallery and its artists as well as database admin.
