Work Experience

I’ve been freelancing as a photographer since 2016, and in 2017 I joined the marketing team at Orms where I still work three days a week, handling their Instagram account and creating content for their blog and digital platforms. I also freelanced briefly at Cosmopolitan magazine between 2015 to early 2017, writing online articles and creating content.

I’m passionate about creating particular aesthetics for a brand’s online presence, and am skilled in social Media strategy, photography, creative direction.

When I’m not working, I enjoy reading and binge-watching thrillers or crime documentaries, hanging out with friends and swimming in the sea.

Being a Virgo, I can’t function as a human being without following my nightly routine and getting a full seven hours of sleep
