I have been working on a freelance basis on/off for the past two years which really suits me as I have my laptop, printer, scanner and reference books all close to hand – and plenty of tea and homemade carrot cake. Yes, you guessed it, in my spare time I love too cook. Over the past two weeks I have planted lots of seeds in a bit to grow all (well, most!) of my summer's cooking produce. You can't get fresher than that!
My expertise lies in marketing, branding, communications and project management. I have a wonderful network of graphic designers, creative directors, printers, photographers, illustrators and DM specialists. I will only resource external help from sources I know are reliable and trustworthy and would prefer to manage all production – if your budget doesn't allow then I would be happy to discuss this with you to see what we can do.
I think that the most important thing when employing a freelancer is trust. If you would like a written testimonial from someone I have collaborated with then let me know and I will arrange for this.
I look forward to working with you.

Work Experience Summary: After graduating from University with a degree in advertising and marketing, I spent two years working as an account executive in a creative marketing agency. I was responsible for researching competitors and market analysis (Internet), and presenting this information to our team of account directors and creatives. I oversaw print and production and was responsible for sourcing props and locations for photo shoots.
I have also worked as a studio manager in a medium-sized design agency in Covent Garden. In addition to this role, I sourced locations, props, models and stylists for photo shoots – including arranging logistics and transport.
With a keen interest in arts and our environment I worked with a community arts group to encourage local communities to think creatively about sustainability. During this project I co-ordinated fundraising and awareness events, co-ordinated and facilitated an educational workshop to engage teachers and their pupils (including writing fact sheets, games etc) and promoted the organisation and its activities using local press, community websites, social media, online advertising and PR.
Most recently I have freelanced as a project manager for a creative marketing agency. Working on behalf of a global recruitment company, I managed a one-day event in The City. I was responsible for sourcing all items on the brief (including 1,000 bananas and five living statues!), producing in-depth briefs and timing plans, managing the print and production of all printed literature (including stickers), day-to-day with the agency's client, building good relationships with all external resources/suppliers, taking photographs and assisting on the day.
