About me

I have a natural flair for creativity and an eye for detail. I am passionate about design, branding and communications within the creative sector, embodying brand values through content creation, experiential design, and events. My tendency to go above and beyond means I thrive under pressure, facing challenges head on whilst maintaining a meticulous, professional and positive approach to work. I thoroughly enjoy working ‘behind the scenes’ to ensure a smooth outcome whether this is on set for a film production or the day-to-day running of a studio. Outside of employment, I am a multidisciplinary artist whose work spans fine art, poetry, film and curation and has been featured on Dazed Digital, Tate and Complex.
