About me


I have had some busy and exciting work experiences in creative companies and would now like to build on those in an editorial/marketing/research position in publishing/film/television. I am hardworking, quick to learn, and reliable, with good organisation and communication skills. I work well independently and as part of a team; as well as being employed in teams I have played Lacrosse for my university and county first team, and worked in a group of volunteer teachers at my local primary school. I am based in London and keen to start work in the above areas as soon as possible.
