About me


I am passionate about fashion, art and travel. My family home is in the Cayman Islands but I was educated in the UK since the age of 9, starting at boarding school and onto University in Leeds. My varied educational experiences, together with a trans-continental life and extensive travel experiences mean that I am very independent and self-motivated and have contributed to my passion and desire to work in a vibrant, creative and dynamic world.
