About me

Hi, I'm Petra. I'm a marketer by name and creative by nature. Born in New York, grown up in Yorkshire, studied in Lancaster and currently living in London, you could say I've had quite a well-rounded upbringing. With prior experience in the food and retail sector, I also developed my knowledge of project and events management at University. I am now currently working for a not-for-profit social enterprise where I get to support the placing of young BAME talent into the creative industry. I enjoy the idea of coordinating and building content for causes that I believe in and being on the ground creating and organising real live events and projects for creative companies that can have a profound effect on society. I thrive on being a part of the digital space and providing communications and administrative support; my skills are best used to support a network of creativity. Music, film and theatre are my life passions, and so I will always try and maintain these creative aspects in anything that I do. If you share a common love for these arts, and believe my digital knowledge and marketing expertise are skills that would complement your business, I welcome you to get in touch.
