About me

 

Over the last 8 years I have worked closely with the musician Imogen Heap and the director and founder of the cultural innovation center Limewharf, Thomas Ermacora. As such I am familiar with the pace and intensity of creative industries remaining calm and collected to ensure the smooth running of any project. I adapt easily to new environments, pick things up quickly and keen to learn new skills. I also understand the significance of remaining professional, discreet and sensitive to people's needs whatever the circumstances. I recently completed a 6week role as the Managing Editor and Production Manager for London Fashion Week The Daily, a biannual pop up newspaper created live for London Fashion Week. In the role as the PA I have experienced a wide range of situations involving: logistics; general admin support; diary management; accounting and banking; liaison with VIP’s, fans, family, staff, management and press; event planning; hostessing; physical set up and deinstall; travel booking; cooking and entertaining; artwork and making; styling and wardrobe research. I was born outside of Malmo, Sweden and moved to London 15 years ago to study fine art at Central Saint Martins. I am passionate about the arts and I am open, loyal and trustworthy and seem to put people at ease with my positive nature. I feel I am also intuitive to people's needs and preferences
