About me

A highly organised, adaptable and insightful graduate seeking a position in a creative environment, whereby I can utilise and develop skills learned throughout my degrees, previous employment and ongoing personal projects. I have a thorough and tactful approach to work and the ability to take initiative within a team and independently. I have a keen interest in the arts, film, literature and politics. In my spare time I am an editor-in-chief and writer for bitter taste, a self-published creative and political zine fore-fronting the various frustrations and nuances of mental illness. Curating this has opened up various opportunities for me, such as event organisation, fundraising and creating contacts within a cosmopolitan and creative community.
