About me

 

I am a recent Art History graduate with a keen interest in digital photography and contemporary art. Throughout my degree I gained experience from a range of different industries. I frequently volunteered locally for the Brighton Arts Festival (HOUSE) and at Lighthouse Digital gallery. I also worked on a temporary basis for Lipsync Post in London. Since graduating last summer I have continued working for Lipsync and also started at Jigsaw24 as part of their events team for the creative companies in Soho.
