About me

As a highly organised, confident and ambitious individual with strong communication skills, I am dependable and hard-working which is reflected in the fact that I have been entrusted with much more responsibility after only a few months at my current employer. I am very creative with a critical eye, I enjoy brainstorming creative ideas, and I relish working in a pressurised environment. As an art, fashion and design aficionado, I devote much of spare time going to the latest exhibitions, openings and events, and I really enjoy keeping up to date with the latest trends and developments via social media and word-of-mouth.
