About me


I view the world through images and I store my experiences as pictures in my mind, which gives me an endless supply of colourful visual creativity to tap into to produce unusually unique and interesting work, whether it involves photos, sugar art, copy or administrative duties. I am also a tri-lingual, enthusiastic and highly motivated individual with excellent interpersonal skills, and a strong academic record. I am quick to grasp new ideas and concepts, and can develop innovative and timely solutions to problems. I left my administrative role in Banking to return to University in the pursuit of a degree that will lead to a creative role, allowing me to utilise the skills that fill me with passion - marketing, advertising, communications, photography and design. Having completed my degree with a predicted 1st class, I am now seeking an exciting opportunity to work within a creative environment as a junior or intern to learn the technical side whilst contributing my ideas. and bringing my lively and open-minded personality to your company.
