A Canadian, British and South African citizen, I have spent extended periods of time in all three countries. These experiences have nurtured my love for Retail Marketing and the many, diverse ways people engage with retailers. I have an excellent and efficient omni channel approach and extensive experience in

conceptualizing retail campaigns, directing photo shoots and client-facing presentations including but not limited to, fashion, decor and food. I have had the great pleasure of previously working for a wide range of internationally recognized agencies and brands, and an endless array of retail projects.
