About me

I graduated with first class honours, from the BA Design course at Goldsmiths, University of London in June 2018. The course was multidisciplinary and research based. My collaborative final project was about the creation of merchandise with an emphasis on events and print. In preparation for the final degree show I was Head of Finance, as well as playing a role in optimising visual content for social media and print. Since graduating I have established my own small business and it is my ambition to use my skills to gain a career which will support me long term. I am extremely organised, creative, enthusiastic, and have the ability to multi-task and work calmly under pressure.
