Nice to meet you.

I am...

          ...a Creative Advertising graduate (MSc) from Edinburgh Napier University.

          ...an English Literature graduate (MA) from the University of Edinburgh.

          ...not afraid to make a complete idiot of myself on a regular basis.

          ...the social media manager and content creator for an independent bookshop

             here in Leith (@thenautilusbookshop).

I was...

          ...selected as "One to Watch" in the D&AD New Blood Festival 2020.

           ...shortlisted for The Nods Student Award 2020.

           ...shortlisted by Led By Donkeys in their 2019 billboard competition.

           ...a music journalist and editor 2013-2018.

I have...

            ...an impressive appetite when it comes to eating potatoes.

            ...two adorable nieces who have me wrapped around their little fingers.

            ...far too many houseplants (as if there is any such thing).

            ...an aggressive love of glitter.

I used to...

                ...work in a dog shop (basically a pet shop but only for fancy dogs).

                ...live in Seattle, WA.

                ...be able to do the splits.

                ...exclusively communicate with my father through postcards.

I pour all of myself into each project...sometimes too much.
