About me

I am an experienced Events, Brand Marketing, Partnerships and Communications Manager, with a demonstrated history of working successfully across the creative fields of art, design and fashion. With drive and intuition, I founded and developed the first specialist global team within COS’ Communications Department: Events. I thrive working in a fast-paced collaborative environment, where my strong interpersonal skills, as well as high level of strategic and creative thinking have resulted in many notable outcomes.
