About me

A Creative Entrepreneur, with a plethora of skills and experience within the Music Industry, AV & Customer Service Industries. As a talented Songwriter / Producer, I'm always looking for more opportunities to collaborate and network. I'm currently looking for a new job or Internship which not only utilises my strengths, skills, and experience but I will enjoy. I'm currently studying a Masters in Music Production and in April 2017 I was chosen to be the Hospital Club's 'Emerging Creative for Music in 2017/18'.

      • My Sales figures have exceeded over 100k and been the leader in my store for several months for new business leads. This alongside my personality, recently led to me being promoted from a small mall store in Bromley South to the Flagship Store of Regent Street. I'm a very goal orientated person and thrive of reaching and exceeding exceptions required of me. I'm also very competitive have have many leadership qualities which allow me to be an asset to any team. When I set myself a goal, or have a job to do I give it 110% to achieve the results I want. The reason I want to leave Apple is because, I know there’s a role out there, which is more suited for my personality, strengths and is in my industry of choice.
