Online influencer and Digital consultant

I have been an active blogger since 2009. I have been a WordPress user and an online influencer and brand ambassador for over five years. As a blogger and online influencer I have worked with global brands such as Lancôme, Airbnb, Asos, Olympus and Coca-Cola, and been featured on Times Square by Forever21.

I have been recognised by Google as an online influencer and been invited by Google to talk about personal brand creation. In 2014, I was named by The Drum one of the UK's 30 under 30 in digital. Finally, I am also a regular speaker and host on BBC London radio.

As the digital lead for Europe at one of the leading global PR firms I have helped international clients develop social media strategies, online advertising campaigns, blogger and influencer outreach programmes and a strong presence online.
