Junior Digital Marketer
I’ve always had a passion for all things creative and digital – from creating and customising Tumblr blogs with basic HTML & CSS code back in 2012 (those were the days) to writing music in my bedroom with my keyboard and Ukulele equipped. If I had known it at the time, digital marketing was the perfect career for me.
In 2016, I took my love of music and creativity further by studying Music at the University of Leeds. This gave me a strong academic basis and appreciation for data and statistics, however, I longed for a career to pursue my creative passions. After completing my Master’s degree in 2020, I enrolled on an internship with the North Yorkshire-based music charity NYMAZ as a Communications Officer. NYMAZ helps bring music education to all children across Yorkshire, no matter their background. I helped organise and market a virtual music festival. From conducting interviews on live streams to writing content for their professional blog, I can credit this internship to when my passion for all things ‘Digital Marketing’ truly began.
I discovered Fishtank in early 2021 through the apprenticeship agency Estio after searching for a digital marketing agency based in Leeds. Whilst finding out more about Fishtank online, I instantly related to each core value and was inspired by their exciting project portfolio. Believing I was a perfect fit for the team, I applied for the apprenticeship and within a month became Fishtank’s newest Digital Marketing Apprentice. I have now been a part of the Fishtank team for a year, although it feels like I’ve always been part of the Fishtank school of fish.
“I’m really looking forward to making waves and pursuing a digital marketing career with the forward-thinking, creative, and exciting team that is Fishtank!”
Since working at Fishtank, I have dived into the deep end, putting my academic experience and creative skills to work whilst learning all about the digital world. More recently I have finished my apprenticeship education and have now been promoted to Junior Digital Marketer.

Over the past year, with the support and guidance of my mentor Ola Tambor who is Head of Digital here at Fishtank, I have dived deeper into the digital world, supporting her with a number of our client’s campaigns utilising the in-depth and Google-certified training I completed as part of my apprenticeship.
Fishtank is a great working environment to learn and grow. I’m really looking forward to making waves and pursuing a digital marketing career with the forward-thinking, creative, and exciting team that is Fishtank!
Life Outside Fish Tank
Music of course! I love singing, I also play the trombone, ukulele, and taiko drums. You’ll find me wherever the music is playing.
I also spend most of my weekends on mini road trips around the UK. I am originally from the tiny town of Wem in Shropshire (home of Greg Davies) so I like to visit my family and my home town friends who are now scattered around the UK.
Bucket List Best Bits
I have a lot on my bucket list, from attending dream gigs to exploring the world (Canada is next on my travel list!) but my next major goal is to buy my first home with my partner fully equipped with a recording studio for producing music and podcasts!
