I am a postgraduate student studying MSc Marketing, having previously studied BA Ancient History at Cardiff University for my undergraduate degree. I originate from Kent but have lived in Cardiff for the majority of the last 4 years, being very involved in both the University's and external music scene, as well as assorted societies such as Roundnet. My other interests include Welsh Rugby and sailing, whilst also being involved in content creation having co-hosted and produced podcasts and performing musical covers.
