About me

A determined, passionate, and creative individual - work for me doesn’t end at 5pm. My thirst for knowledge pushes me to learn and take some thing away from all my experiences. I love to engage with new people, and form new connections. I believe a positive attitude and willingness to thrive is key to success. I relish working with a final vision in mind, and never shy away from tasks thrown at me. My job bleeds into my personal life: I love art and culture. My ultimate pleasure is to explore new places. I've recently started a sustainable fashion course, as the ethical issues we have in the industry are important to try and fix.
