About me
Alongside running a rural gite business in South West France which involves interior design, styling, designing and maintaining our website, blog, social media output, marketing and publicity through visual storytelling, as well as communicating with guests and managing bookings, I am looking for opportunities to get involved in creative projects within the interior, styling and publishing areas. I have an architectural background and extensive administration skills, so design and organisation are strengths. I like to be hands on and craft and make too, but also love to write interesting, inspiring and engaging copy. I am an experienced creative design assistant and office administrator with a demonstrated history of working in the interior design and architecture sectors as well as the events industry and art education. Skilled in design, hands-on Installation & styling and administration with studio management experience. Strong creative and administrative professional who likes to challenge convention, with a BA Hons in Architectural Studies from Oxford Brookes University I am focused, driven, resourceful and highly organised, with presentation, communication, and problem-solving skills and acute attention to detail.
