About me
Marketing professional with skills in social media management, video editing, content production, events, blog writing, commissioning, e-commerce and email marketing. I currently work in Marketing for a top London university (University of Westminster) and previously worked at 5 other universities. I've also developed a freelance practice creating videos, social media content, email campaigns and blogs for a number of clients. I have a background in the arts, having studied BA (Hons) Fine Art at Newcastle University where my practice included collage, video creation and animation. As a student, I exhibited at and co-curated a number of exhibitions at galleries across Newcastle, at the Künstakademie Münster during my term abroad in Germany and for my Degree show in London. I apply my creative skills to my work, often creating visual content for marketing channels from scratch.
