About me


As a young enthusiastic individual I am looking to move into a more challenging role and to further develop my entrepreneurial spirit in a fast moving, multidimensional creative agency. Both formal and on the job training have been my recipe for success and have enabled me to take on new and challenging opportunities within my relatively short career. Education - Currently studying for a Degree (Hons) part time in Business and Business Management – September 2014 I have recently completed my first year as an undergraduate, studying towards completing an Associates Degree (FNd) in Business and Business Management which will progress after third term to an Honours Degree Hons (BSc) Musical Society - Open University The Music Society has been in existence for 30 years and is affiliated to the OU Students Association. The society allows me to interact with other OU undergraduates to share and collaborate on musical trends from all genres. I manage my own blog called #FFFFFF, a portfolio of my own creative inspiration and influences - www.hashtagffffff.com
