About me
I am actively searching for a new creative endeavour, maximising and developing my current skillset acquired from experience in retail, merchandising, interior design, property and administration.
Projects
  • Portland's
    Portland'sLast January, I saw an opportunity to explore and develop my creative flair and passion for property and interior design. Over the past year, one of my focuses has been starting up and developing a home décor brand, based around upcycled furniture.
