About me

I'm a 2016 English Literature graduate (1st Class Hons) from the University of Southampton currently working in Digital Marketing at Sony Music UK. I have previous copywriting experience from Haygarth and BBH London, and have also worked as a freelance copywriter and journalist. I am a self-motivated and dedicated individual with a strong academic background. I love learning more about the world around me and stretching my mind to understand new subjects. I’m a collector of information, gathering knowledge and inspiration everywhere I go, and always looking for new ways to improve my writing and creativity.

  • While at Southampton, I wrote for The Edge Magazine, which led to my position as a writer at The National Student. I was also a member of several societies, including Boxing, Ballet, Contemporary Dance, Latin & Ballroom Dance, and Street Dance. I particularly enjoyed the Creative Writing modules I studied during my degree, and eventually submitted a Creative Writing piece for my final dissertation, instead of the usual academic essay. I received a First for my dissertation, and previously in my second year, won the faculty prize for Best Overall Academic Performance.
