  • My background is in fashion (FCP graduate from CSM - 2005) and since then I have worked in account/project management roles at London based design agencies spanning architecture, interiors, branding, corporate comms and digital. My experience is multi-disciplinary which has enabled me to work with a variety of people with multiple skillsets. My project management role at Air Design encompassed management of large scale retail destination fit outs - interior design and signage for shopping centres as well as the production of brand manuals for roll out by centre management marketing teams. I have very strong project management skills: strategy, concept development and delivery as well as planning, risk assessment, estimating, budget management and project analysis.
