About me

● I am an enthusiastic, ambitious and creative person with good communication skills who can work independently but thrive in a team environment. ● Highly versatile with exceptional multi-tasking skills with a hands on approach ● I believe I have a good business sense and am well used to meeting deadlines in high pressured situations. ● Extensive experience in programme management, production, distribution and operational. ● I trained in art and design, specialising in textiles and am especially interested in matters of style, design, colour and visual impact in both fashion, products and interiors. I love travelling and exploring as much as possible as well as designing and being creative in my spare time. I spin and swim to keep fit, which I love; I completed the Virgin London Marathon in 2012. I also have an unhealthy obsession of shoes!
