About me
Strategic, creative and entrepreneurial, I am a storyteller and networker with experience working agency-side, in-house and in scale-ups for creative and design-led individuals, brands and events. I currently work at WeTransfer at the intersection of culture, technology and design. I spearhead communications for WePresent, our editorial platform and arts curator to 4m monthly readers in 195 countries, WeTransfer’s advertising arm and oversee our global awards strategy. Based in London, my goal is to position the brand as an authority and supporter of the creative industries in the U.K. and Europe. Prior to this I worked in the Communications team at London Design Festival and London Design Biennale, founded by Ben Evans CBE and Sir John Sorrell, two champions of the most dynamic creative economy in the world. I have a BA French from UCL (2:1) and have studied abroad in France in both Paris and Lyon. I owe my love for culture to France as much as London and the U.K. I am a Fellow of the RSA and am interested in meeting entrepreneurial, kind and interesting people. Please reach out if you wish to say hello.
