About me

I am a multi-disciplinary designer and creative thinker specifically interested in idea generation, art department, advertising, experiential events and world building. I enjoy creating work that is witty, relatable and socially conscious, finding interesting connections between different themes. I am currently seeking entry level positions in challenging, multi-dimensional roles in the areas of creative/idea generation, art department and experiential and immersive events.

    • During my time with the Creative Mentor Network (Cohort 16) I was mentored by Jenny Bust, a Client Partner at Lucky Generals. During our sessions together, I gained insight into the different roles that exist within an advertising agency and now have a clearer direction of my future career path. Aside from exposed to the day-to-day running of an ad agency, developed professional skills and was guided with advice on how to apply for roles and develop my portfolio.
