She has a gift for noticing the things that other people don’t notice, connecting the dots, pulling out the essential and important elements and assimilating them into something coherent which makes everything suddenly make sense. She has a way of seeing the forest, the trees and the patterns in the wood.

Tina has worked in book and magazine publishing, qualitative market research, local radio and ran her own art gallery. She has worked on projects with a wide range of clients from Asprey and Garrards to Brantano, IBM to General Mills, Patek Philippe to Glaxo.
