About me


Having worked six years in the luxury sector for companies in the fashion, jewellery and art industries I am currently looking for a new role that will draw on my business acumen and creative flair. I was recently promoted within my role in B2B marketing and have over three years experience in a marketing capacity. My master’s degree at France’s leading business school and international study from a young age have given me confidence in five languages of which I am fluent in three.
