About me

As a committed, bright, and personable graduate I have recently expanded my editorial experience for an online magazine. I am now looking for the next step in my career. Creative, analytical and solution-orientated by nature, I am adept at identifying social trends with an eye to cultural relevance. I also have several years of freelance administrative experience working in high-pressured environments.
