About me

I have broad experience across strategic/financial planning, lead generation, new business development, fundraising, digital strategy/marketing, and video and event production.

Professionally-speaking, I’m currently a new digital new business manager at Formula One, where I work across F1’s digital partnerships. I’ve previously worked in strategy and business development at Universal, and as an assistant at a production company.

In my free time, amongst other things, I’ve produced a show at Sadler’s Well’s Theatre (raising £15,000 for KidsCo and Invisible Children), and produced a film about domestic violence in association with a number of women’s rights charities – which received wide coverage in the Indian media. I’ve also previously volunteered at schools and nursing homes, and for the charity Envision, where I mentored a class of Year 12 students.

What am I looking for

I’m very open-minded, but looking to use my skills to support causes I’m passionate about.
