About me
Hi, I’m Tom. I’m looking for a project or account management role working within the creative industries. I studied on the post-disciplinary Design BA at Goldsmiths, University of London and am currently based in central London. My practice is built on collaboration and working with people from a variety of different backgrounds. I look to use my communication skills, creative knowledge and ability to bring out the best in others to deliver high quality outcomes. I’m currently a sales consultant at Paul Smith in London and Director of Duat Ltd alongside my creative partner Charlie Witter. I’ve also taught at Goldsmiths, University of London and The University of Creative Arts as well as having participated in a variety of internships at creative companies.
