About me

A creative digital marketer with strong experience in content creation, curation and digital strategy - in particular website design, development and crafting engaging content, working with various content creators across the marketing industry. I am at home in a fast-paced, nimble and 'test and learn' type of environment, one that nurtures creativity and expression. On a personal level I am big into words. I write and perform spoken word poetry around London at various nights and events. I am also in the middle of writing a film screenplay.
