About me

If you’re looking for a creative thinker, problem solver, organiser, researcher, strategy writer or cake baker, then let me introduce myself… I’m a former Creative Copywriter who’s been working in some of London’s top ad agencies for the last two years. I am now looking to apply my unique creative background to a more strategic role. Making observations and deconstructing them into intriguing insights comes naturally to me, and I cannot wait to bring all of this to my new role. I know that with a little guidance from a great agency I will become a ‘kick-ass’ Strategist that any team will be excited to work with. All opportunities and advice are welcome, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
