About me

 

I am passionate about the visual arts, fashion and self-published photo books. I have two years experience working for publications including Wallpaper* Magazine, The Daily Telegraph and the Robb Report UK. My open minded approach to new ideas and gaining new skills is underlined by my wide range of experience and skills. The most satisfying roles for me are ones that are balanced between working creatively and logically. My ideal role would be one that allows me to work with photographers and illustrators. I love a challenge and am used to being thrown in at the deep end on projects. I also assist Still Life Photographer, Neil Mersh and Elite Model Management with ad hoc projects, including London Fashion Week & Elite Model Look.
