About me

I am dedicated to telling stories - both visual and spatial. As a qualified architect and co-founder of an award-winning blog, I have developed skills in creative direction, art direction and content creation. This creative background is supported by solid commercial experience in the fields of buying, merchandising and business development. I am a skilled communicator both on paper and in person; something my copy-writing, graphic design work and public speaking are a testament to. My sensibility and approach is informed by this background in fashion, architecture and craft: it is highly considered, detail orientated and meaningful.
