Having had the opportunity to live abroad in Australia, South Africa and China allowed me to experience different cultures and design eras. I strive off other creatives and work really well in a team with diverse skills. Working for Apple for four years whilst studying interior architecture at UAL taught me to provide excellent customer service, manage and train team members and most importantly to give and receive positive and challenging feedback. My current interests consist of photography, social media strategy consulting, film production, styling, editing and curating content for current and new clients. I have an exciting, hard working and fun personality, capable working on my own and in a team. I love receiving feedback on the fly and have been told I am very approachable, trust worthy and innovative.Locked Pro Plan feature

OMG SHE'S BALD created by Charnah Ellesse, is a project exploring modern ideas of femininity through women who have shaved their heads. “Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.” - G.D Anderson My role for this project was to help produce the logistics of locations, timings, castings, direct the camera angles, art direction, assist in the edit and final graphics for the short film. Working with two camera operators was interesting and challenging. We had a digital camera and VHS camera to use for main shots and cut aways through out the film giving it uniqueness. Working in a team was exciting and kept the project interesting. I continuously incorporated peoples ideas, received and gave feedback throughout. The end result was played at a private viewing in Dalston and was featured in DAZED.com / @DAZED instagram with 1.1M followers.
