I am a confident, approachable and enthusiastic individual travelling the world whilst working as a windsurf instructor. I have always had an underlying passion for creativity, audio and design. Attaining Photography and Graphic Communication A levels. Following these studies with art and design foundation at Arts University Bournemouth, to build on my portfolio, grasping a wider scope on all the aspects and avenues that flow with this industry sector. On completion of this diploma, I embarked on a Chinese adventure to introduce and teach a passion of mine; wind surfing, in a contrast culture and 'unknown' way of life. A mind boggling, self-challenging and eye opening experience. Exposing myself to other cultures and areas of the world brought me on immensely as an individual and pushed my independence. Inspired by the spiritual music culture in and around Capetown, I went on to study Music Management in the Netherlands last year, expanding my network on an International level. Transferring back in the UK to start in 2nd year Business with Exeter. I am particularly interested to drive my skill sets and push for knowledge around business modules, focusing on creative aspects to business, and networking within this sector. My art and design subjectivity alongside music knowledge, combined with general business skills, leadership activities and a natural creative flare, I am looking towards work experience, freelance or placement opportunities.
