About me

 

A Brand Consultant with a strong interest in Fashion and Digital Marketing, I am fascinated with how we exist in relation to the culture and society in which we live and how this impacts on consumer behaviour. Whilst at Brand Union I gained a solid understanding of brand strategy; uncovering, conceptualising and articulating compelling and differentiating propositions and experiences for both corporate and consumer brands. I have been very lucky to work across a wide spectrum of clients and projects affording me a breadth of experience, knowledge and skills. Now, I am looking to take my experience of working in a big international agency and apply it to a smaller more organic outfit. For me, brands come into being when the worlds of commerce and creativity collide. It is this sweet spot that triggers my imagination and inspires me to do good work. In the workplace, I contribute to high-level conversations with senior stakeholders and also enjoy rolling my sleeves up and getting stuck in to all aspects of office life. A keen writer with buckets of creative energy, I am happiest when working in a team with like-minded people.
