Named by Target Jobs (2015) as one of the UK's Top 10 Students for Business Management, I have grown up with a genuine passion to work in a fast paced, growing business environment. Soon after returning home to Northern Ireland I was given the opportunity to work with MCVConversions LTD. Faced with the challenge to analyse, design and execute a growth and development plan for MCV, I am excited to utilise my skills and experience developed during my degree and time in Edinburgh in order to apply these to am SME currently operating in a growing yet demanding market. Follow MCVConversions LTD journey @ https://www.facebook.com/mcvconversions/ Moving back to the provence has also enabled me the time and resources to develop my own personal creative portfolio. I enjoy spending my additional hours freelancing as a creative with the focus on content creation and managing online business platforms. My personal portfolio includes photography projects, artisan crafted local produce and small business content creation and management. I am particularly interested in growth, change and sustainable development. My areas of enthusiasm and passion lye within creative practice, community and brand awareness, business consultation and creative marketing. I am seeking any and all opportunities within the creative field, in the UK and further, be it freelance, contract, full or part time or simply a fun opportunity. I hope to collaborate and support fellow creatives and explore that others can teach me.
After returning home to Northern Ireland, I was given the opportunity to join the family business as Director of MCVConversions LTD. I am currently leading a relaunch of the business and rebranding of MCVConversions.

My responsibilities include, rebranding the company, creating and managing all online and offline content, growing sales through the development of new products and services and finally managing the general everyday business activities.
After assisted the production team for the upcoming Liz Earle campaign, I gained the opportunity to be casted as one of the models.

My experience working with the brand was unbelievable and my devotion and loyalty for the brand has grown strongly.
