I am an expert user of online retail platforms including Etsy, Folksy, eBay, Amazon and BigCartel.
I started my career working for a team of venture capitalists in New York and currently juggle roles in consumer research and policy writing for healthcare organisations in the UK. From data entry to conducting focus groups of people with diverse support needs to finalising a press release on behalf of senior politicians, it's all in a day's work for me.
Fluent in French and Spanish, I'm a British citizen, but have worked, studied and lived in New York, Edinburgh and Paris. I am currently based in central Scotland. from 2006 - 2009 I successfully combined a full time day job with freelance research activity, and studying towards an MSc in Healthcare Informatics. I hold an MA (Joint Hons) Eng Lit and French from the University of Edinburgh, and a PG Dip in International Business Management moderated by the University of Oxford, attending classes taught at NYU and Colombia University in New York City.
A serial entrepreneur, I took my school to the finals of Young Enterprise in 1993 with a business producing personalised stationery, but was commissioned to design tiles for Pilkington at the age of 10, which is where my interest in the creative industries was sparked.
I've continued to channel my love of stationery into a successful papercraft business and have recently launched my own clothing line for children as a partnership venture.
