About me

 

I have always been passionate about art and design in general from a young age. I am creative, imaginative and I love to learn new things. I have three years’ experience in sales, selling advertising spaces for a French music website and personalised products for a London based company. I have two French degrees in marketing and advertising and a lot of experience in this field both in France and in the UK. I am computer literate, dedicated, reliable and hard working. I have excellent planning, organisation and customer service skills. I believe I have an excellent eye for details, a great taste and I can recognise upcoming trends and fashion.
