About me

For the past four years, I have been working in New York City for MAC Cosmetics, conceptualizing and executing both global industry events and retail experiences. I improved productions by bringing relevant leading creative partners to the table and strategically identifying new methods to drive deeper exposure and create more personalized, compelling content from events. Now, I am looking for a new, challenging career opportunity to apply and expand upon my skills in London. I would love to work in an environment where I can leverage the rich networks I have built within fashion and culture to continue helping brands connect, engage, and evolve.
