About me


Currently my role as eCommerce Buyer at the Royal Academy of Arts involves enhancing and supporting the gallery through commercial channels online and in-store. This involves conceiving and delivering creative strategies that include developing product ranges, negotiating and coordinating commercial arrangements with artists, designers and affiliates, creative direction and retail strategy. Working closely with the digital team, I have a continuing drive to expand and develop particularly in media and confidant that my skill set can work across industries.
