About me

I have worked for the past five years in various artistic and creative fields. From makings minature models for Damien Hirst to helping organise a Pan European event for Investment Managers, i have gained experience in many areas. I love all the artistic fields and have an indepth knowledge of animation and film. I am a creative in my own right, i have storyboarded on shows in the UK and abroad. As well as animation i also have a passion for fashion, fine art and graphic based work, and would jump at the chance to work in these industries. I like working in both events and as a creative. Event managment was my latest role, working alsongside the marketing team, social media and sales teams. I believe i created a successful event with brilliant, positive feedback. Next i would ideally want to work in a creative industry, to work in events that i have a personal desire to attend can only make for the best possible outcomes.
