About me

 

I was one of Wallpaper Magazine’s top graduates of 2014, and have been featured in other design magazines such as Icon and OnOffice, and a number of online blogs and sites, as well as displaying my work at London Design Festival, Milan Design Week and Clerkenwell Design Week. I am a hard working, goal oriented creative, and have a strong entrepreneurial mindset. For the past year I have been developing my own design practice, designing and producing luxury furniture and kitchenware for international high-end retailers. I am now extremely keen to work for a company where I can further develop my skills and become an asset to the team. I have lived and studied in several different countries including Italy, Saudi Arabia, Dubai and Albania. This has provided me with excellent communication skills, broadened my perspective, and given me a unique aesthetic in my design style. As well as this, I have, for the last four years, been in an internationally touring band, Flamingods, featured heavily in national and international press and radio. Having had the responsibility of managing budgets on international tours in my band’s early days and working closely with our record label’s PR teams, I have built my skills in budget management, tour management, PR and targeted social media advertising. For the last two years I have been organising and running a successful South London club night, Gym & Tonic, which has provided me with the opportunity to further my skills in music event management as well as digital and physical PR, advertising, brand building, and social media content creation and management, among others. Simultaneously pursuing my passions in music, design and events, I have to be impeccably organised, and am incredibly good at multi-tasking. I am not afraid of being given responsibility and am clearly a highly motivated self-starter, having had the opportunity to pursue my own successes in the arts and build my personal and leadership skills.
