About me
I am a content strategist and writer with 6+ years experience in driving sustainability communications and engagement for luxury brands through considered and holistic storytelling. With experience working across consumer, corporate and academic audiences, I can support organisations, teams or projects in connecting ideas and stories that add up to a broader picture of their purpose and overarching narrative - bringing a creative yet critical mindset to each project. Most recently at Bamford, I developed the brand’s sustainability messaging and tone of voice to meet increasing consumer demand for transparency, delivering multi-platform content and editorial projects to support the brand's evolution and expansion whilst staying true to its founding purpose. My work on shaping the narrative for the Home-grown Merino collection was instrumental in securing the brand’s successful application for 'Product Innovation of the Year', which Bamford was awarded at the Positive Luxury Awards 2022. A Masters in Innovation Management at UAL Central Saint Martins has sharpened my ability to transform opportunities into actionable and creative strategies for change, matching big-picture thinking with an eye for detail and implementation. My dissertation research combines my passion for driving sustainability forward at scale with my experience in the consumer marketing space: applying a critical lens to sustainability communications practice, I investigate the changing cultural narratives around the climate crisis and advocate for the shift towards regenerative principles and strategies for innovation.

The prototype was developed by Molly Simpson and Purvisha Sutaria, both students of MA Inn
