  • As well as my Songwriting Degree, I am a professional musician. I gig, record, produce, write songs and rehearse with several bands, ensembles and acts – Usually as a keys player or a vocalist. My music has been featured in the short film ‘G O’clock’ due for release in 2016.


Assistant Stylist & Fashion Assistant


Aug 2013 - Jan 2016
  • • Assistant to Misty Dee Griffiths – Stylist (Oct ’15) I assisted Misty Dee Griffiths for a 90’s menswear shoot collaborating with the photographer Jamie Kendrick for Pause Magazine. For this shoot I was mostly based in the studio liaising with Modelling Agencies and PR Companies as well as prepping the clothing for the shoot and for returns. • Assistant to Bradley Palmer/Anders Sølvsten Thomsen – Stylist (Aug ’15) I have done freelance work with Bradley Palmer (assistant to Anders Sølvsten Thomsen) for two shoots for GQ Style China. During this time I was organising the couriers for pick-ups and drop-offs from PR Companies and then organising the clothes on the days of shooting. • Assistant to Christopher Preston (Sep ’13 – Oct ‘15) I have worked as an assistant stylist for Christopher Preston (Menswear Stylist & Fashion Editor for Hero Magazine) on many shoots, music videos and celebrity appearances. I helped Christopher with fashion ideas and the styling of the models as well as the steaming and preparation of the clothes for each shoot. As well as the practical assistance I also help with his emails and admin work, which included liaising with PR Companies to have the clothes delivered and returned.

Here I have improved my writing skills as well as working to ensure an online presence is achieved when on site at festivals. This has also improved my knowledge on the ever-changing music industry and enabled me to have a good ear for what will do well in months to come.
