After graduating with a Digital Arts & Technology degree I have been searching for my career. I like web development, graphic design, marketing, video editing, communicating with clients, creating process… That’s what lead me into Project Management. By being a project manager it meant I could be involved in all the things I love doing!
I have over 4 years of project management experience. My strength is having skills in multiple fields which helps any communication between business and client/supplier.
MARKETING & GRAPHIC DESIGN
With over 2.5 years marketing experience I don’t only look at what you do but why you do it. I love Google Analytics and analyzing data. I am also proficient using most software within the Adobe suite, to help bring ideas to life.
WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT/ DESIGN
I can create websites using HTML/CSS and WordPress. I’ve also have experience building and managing Shopify (e-commerce) stores.
ABOVE & BEYOND
I always try and go above and beyond in everything I do. From going the extra mile for a client, to working over the weekends. I’m proud of my work and I hope you will be too.

A-Levels: Graphic Design (A*), Photography (A*) & ICT (C)
I chose these A Levels as I was very passionate about them and wanted to learn more. Photography was very creative and I loved using real film development techniques. I created a human sized piece for my final project as I liked to push boundaries and do something different. Graphic Design was new to me, but I quickly picked up the Adobe Suite and a love for Typography. ICT was one of my stronger subjects, although it was mainly Microsoft Programs.
