Objective

With a focus on marketing and events for the past six years, I have a strong background in writing, digital, fashion and travel. Creative and strategic, I strongly believe that no two clients are the same. I pride myself on understanding each individual client’s mission and key objectives, so I can tailor my work to maximise brand awareness and deliver the best results. With a thorough understanding of the creative process when it comes to marketing, running events and content creation, my strong organisational skills help me to guide projects from inception to a positive end result. I am a firm believer in the saying “do something you love and you will never work a day in your life”.
