Having graduated from Leeds University with a degree in English and Philosophy, I embarked upon a post University gap year, fulfilling dreams of exploring the Antipodes and South East Asia. I came back 6 months later to find a job in the big city. I completed a number of internships and graduate schemes in areas including publishing and Arts PR, working at exhibition openings, literary festivals and also at the Man Booker Award Ceremony. I then landed at The Talent Business as a receptionist, and have since then risen to the ranks of assistant for the Marketing team. Since moving to London, I enjoy snooping around my local cafes on concealed side streets in the eccentric East End, and I have a real passion for literature and theatre so I love checking out the latest West End plays and performances. Unlike many of my colleagues, I am no kick-boxer or regular gym-goer, but do love a good long dog-walk in the countryside.
