I was born in London (Hackney) but most of my family are from Portugal, split between the surf town of Nazare and a city in northern Portugal named Viseu. I have a joint degree in Journalism & News Media and Photography which I studied at the University of Roehampton in London. In my spare time I like to work on my photography, go to music festivals and events and binge on Pinterest. LOVE music, travel, fashion and interior design.
I have 3 years of experience of working in luxury fashion and lifestyle PR, with client accounts spanning from high street to high end luxury including menswear, womenswear and jewellery. I started working within an in-house environment but then came over to agency-side about 2 years ago. I’d say planning and executing the Amy Winehouse Foundation Ball was one of my biggest and proudest achievements until this day. I was able to get real valuable insights into event planning, celebrity endorsement and celebrity press. I have been looking to make the move to Digital PR for some time now and with the perfect mix of clients/brands they work with, MediaVision was the obvious choice!
What’s not to love? I love the fact that results are visible and palpable, especially when considering client satisfaction. I also find that you get to be a lot more creative within the digital realm, and having a background in photography studies, I love any task or project (no matter how small or menial) that allows me to use those skills.
