About me


Ever since graduating from university in 2009 I have wholeheartedly indulged myself in the world of Public Relations, Communications and Marketing. I have experience in a variety of positions and hold a strong understanding of what it takes to communicate messages effectively to an array of target audiences with differing personal and professional interests. The full range of my experience comes not only from my recent working life but also from what I have achieved in my spare time, making me a more well-rounded Communications and Marketing professional.
