About me

 

London based freelance writer and filmmaker. I have dedicated my time since my completion of an Art and Design foundation at Central Saint Martins, to fashion and a variety of film studies at a variety of institutions including Saint Martins, London College of Fashion, The University of California (UCLA) and Wesleyan University (Connecticut). I have taken internships and freelance work as well as independent studies in areas of fashion, filmmaking and writing/blogging, as I build up a body of work in these areas. ** Many of my film and writing courses have been completed via COURSERA, RAINDANCE and SKILLSHARE and therefore have not been included on this profile due to no place for them.
