About me

 

Having recently returned from a two year travelling stint in Australia, I am now looking to return to a junior creative role, in keeping with my previous experience and qualifications. I have a strong History of Art degree from the University of Manchester and have volunteered in several art galleries across the country. Before Australia, I worked in creative, online retail, but since my return 11 months ago I have held a highly organisational administrative role at the Hawksmoor in Piccadilly Circus. Currently based in Camberwell, South London.
