About me


I love exploring and discovering new things; whether that’s new music, markets, artists or simply a different running route – I’ll always be sure to have a look what’s round the next corner. I also regularly explore further afield, I lived in Paris when I was younger and have travelled a lot, both on a gap year and whilst doing my second year of uni in Canada. Through this I’ve met some great friends from different backgrounds and cultures. This sense of curiosity and adventure is something I apply to both work and play. I’m self-driven and motivated and will always strive for the best and most original work and approach to situations. I’m a good communicator and a team player. Due to my optimism and happy attitude my friends and family call me Smiley Vee.

LIDA HAHA stand-up comedy course

  • I took part in a stand-up comedy course that culminated in a 5 minute solo stand-up set to the whole of LIDA. Absolutely terrifying! But a fantastic opportunity to learn valuable presentation skills, instil an enjoyment of presenting, and meet new people.
