About me

 

My ambition is to build a career that enables me to combine both the creative and commercial sides of my personality. As I side project, over the last year I have been preparing to launch my own company; a soft-tailored suit silk brand for women. I have demonstrated through a variety of activities a very practical nature, an ability to make things happen, combined with strong artistic flair and entrepreneurialism.

  • I've spent the last 3 years studying the world around me; ranging from geographies of economies, memories and patterns of consumption.
