About me

The one thing I want out of my career is to have a positive impact on the world around me. My colleagues' and peers' happiness is incredibly important to me. I believe that the best things are achieved in life through team work and collaboration. I am creative, experimental, extremely ambitious and driven. Communication is paramount and I am a very open person. Not afraid to take on new challenges, learn new skills and share any experience and wisdom I can. I have streams of ideas and personal projects that I work on when not focussing on my job. However, I know when to take a break and let loose with friends and colleagues and I value down time. Hopefully I will have the chance to prove how valuable I am to a creative team.
