About me

A 23 year old with an overactive vivid imagination. I had my first article published in a magazine when I was 15 years old and have been writing and editing ever since. I have experience working with both print and online publications and am also a keen social media manager. I also have an eye for graphic and web design. Not just a creative, I have recently been working at a law firm as a paralegal/PA to a busy team of five solicitors, thus developing my soft skills to enable me to thrive in a fast paced and deadline driven working environment. I am looking for freelance or full time role in or around London.
