About me

 

After recently holding the position of fashion & culture researcher, at Vice Media, i-D magazine, Dazed Digital as well as British Vogue, I have have been taught be a great deal about online publishing, and the attention to detail needed in this industry. These experiences have provided me with great adaptable skills that would be perfect for positions as a researcher and creative consultant. As well as my pervious roles as a digital researcher, I have work experience in a variety of different environments, from offices, to sets, to design and photography studios, giving me the varied skills and abilities to work with many different types of people. I am flexible, quick to pick up new skills and eager to learn from others. Being hard working and having a keen eye for the latest trends and cultures worldwide, has allowed me to excel in a number fields of work; from working for myself creatively, showcasing my own collection at London fashion week mens, to assisting set designers with coming up with the creative direction for shoots and videos, and even producing short films for Channel 4 and ICA. I take great pride in keeping up to date with all the latest social media platforms and technological advances. I also am fluent with programmes such as Final Cut Pro and both the Adobe and Mircosoft suites.
