About me

I’m a driven, motivated individual who has an eye for trends and loves a good adventure. After graduating from university and working for a year I decided to leave Australia and take the time to travel Europe and Egypt. My travels have taken me to places I have dreamed about and have been documented on my personal blog. As a dual citizen, I hold a British passport and with my travels coming to an end, for now, I hope to work in a range of sectors in the PR/media industry in London.
