About me

I have a BA degree in Events Management and currently aspiring to specialize in a fashion industry. I did internships in film industry - Cannes Film Festival, publishing industry - Conde Nast Britain, marketing industry - Spinter Research as well as did promotion for Sunderland AFC. Furthermore volunteered in several music and cultural festivals. All the gained experience gave me a better insight into every one of these industries, giving me more in depth understanding of how the creative and operational processes are developed. Being in these environments inspires me creatively, pushing me to learn and experiment while not getting scared of incorporating aspects from different industries. Creativity is infectious and has to be spread.
