About me
Started my career at the world famous Kew Royal Botanic Gardens studying botanical horticulture. An incredible opportunity to work with some of the worlds rarest and most endangered species of plants. Alongside my horticultural career, I have been focused on producing music as an independent artist. I’ve been lucky enough to connect with some incredible people over the past few years. I create psychedelic dance and synthwave which I’ve released through an independent label. I’m looking for a complete career change and would like to be involved in an industry I love which of course is fashion. I follow all the latest trends and am an avid reader of Vogue and GQ. I would like to be a part of a fashion house whose clothes I wear, love and make me proud to be British. I had my first shoot before lockdown in preparation to start my professional portfolio and become a model. The shoot was fantastic and I know in my heart that having an involvement in the fashion industry is ultimately what I want to do as a full time career.
