About me


I’m a passionate and creative individual, a natural self-starter with an entrepreneurial and commercial approach to my work. I am highly motivated by a challenge and seek perfection in every project I fulfill. Alongside this I have a thorough eye for detail and have the ability to adapt to different work environments. I’m a natural leader, and function well alone or as part of a team.   Over the past few years I have had the opportunity to work with, and help, some fantastic businesses grow – from marketing strategy and implementation to managing key projects, new site openings, new products & brands. In addition to this I have an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for design and interiors, and as a side project I am starting my own soft-furnishing brand called Cush. We appeared at Portobello Market at Christmas last year and are due to have our first stockist announced imminently.
