About me

I have extensive experience in the fashion and creative industries. I completed my Fine Arts degree to immediately move onto Visual Merchandising for Country Road Auckland, whilst co-directing Circle Gallery, Newmarket; a co-founded art gallery and studio directed by a colleague and myself. These invaluable experiences have helped me gain an understanding for every facet of companies’ workings, from customer relations to event management. I pride myself on my professional and friendly demeanour. I have excellent communication skills and work efficiently and effectively to complete a task individually and as part of a team.
