About me

I am a 23-year-old seeking employment in the music, creative or culture industries in London. I have a range of experiences with a variety of brands and agencies which have given me insight into writing, brand strategy, concept ideation and production. I am comfortable working in new and challenging environments and I am a creative thinker. I have directed documentaries and animations, set up night club events as well as pitched business ideas to investors. All of this, coupled with my first class degree in Economics & Philosophy, has developed me into a personable leader with an analytical mind as well as a creative way of thinking.
