About me

With five years experience inside global and boutique branding, PR,
photographic and advertising agencies, I have a strong passion for
media production with an emphasis on stills advertising and fashion. I
am extremely hard working and focused, illustrated by both my strong
industry experience and 1st class degree in Marketing and
Communications. Last year, I took the recession as an opportunity to
accomplish a long-term goal to travel the world for 9 months, which
broadened my outlook on life, helped me to develop as a person and
realise my career aspirations. Having recently completed a 6-month
freelance production contract, I am hungry for a new challenge and
would love to work as part of a leading agency on any forthcoming
production opportunities.
