Tell us a bit about yourself

I was born in Kingston and have lived there ever since. My favourite subjects have always been fashion and media related, which is why I studied Visual Display and Retail Branding at the Fashion Retail Academy in London, That’s where my love for digital began. In my spare time I enjoy going for food at my fave restaurants with friends. As much as I love food, I also love to go to the gym!

What previous experience do you have in digital?

My experiences in the fashion and PR industry are what brought me to digital. I started off as a part time styling assistant for Kate Halfpenny- during my spare time at college I would assist on advertorials for the likes of L’Oréal and Garnier, as well as styling the music video for Simply Red’s comeback tour in 2015.I have had internships with Giles Deacon and Prada, both with PR aspects; the traditional in-house approach they use towards press is what inspired me to go digital.

Why do you enjoy working in digital?

I love the fast paced nature of digital – there’s always something new going on. Coming from a creative background, digital is great because of how visual it is.
