I draw, I create digital models, I write, I make music
I have achieved a successful record in media research and project management over the last eight years. I am now returning to my true passion: the built environment. Having supplemented my existing masters degree with recent qualifications in technical drawing and architectural modelling, I am looking to add value to an organisation by combining my strong and varied skill-set with my knowledge and keen interests in architecture, urban planning and the inhabited environment.
My employment history
The first part of my career centred around social housing refurbishments and urban regeneration. During this time, I embarked on a successful Masters degree in building surveying, which culminated in a thesis (awarded Merit) on the development of industrial real estate in southeast Europe. On moving to Brussels, I was engaged as Corporate Marketing Manager and later Head of Marketing by an industrial real estate developer, since when I have been working as Head of Insight for a pan-European trade association representing media companies.
My recent work has focused on researching and writing high level reports designed to help senior industry executives assess and address the challenges facing their businesses, as well as conference speaking, event and project management.
