About me

 

Imagination was never something I was lacking. I have always had a creative mind, seeing beauty in the world around me and some of the darker aspects of life. Always searching for new concepts, pushing boundaries and pushing myself even harder to achieve something that is out of the ordinary. Having a fashion background, and sales experience has left me with the ability to hold my own in a luxury fashion environment. An open minded individual, and a dedicated worker who enjoys engaging with new people and can work meticulously within a group or as a team leader. I have a strong sense of myself and my goals and would make an invaluable addition to any team.
