Profile

Since graduating from Sussex University in 2013 I have been


working as the marketing manager for Mist Electronic
Cigarettes as well as pursuing a part time career as a DJ and
music producer Lorca. In the summer of 2013 my brother
and I were running the business out of his bedroom in
Brighton. Today were a team of 6 working from our head
office. Over 2 years weve expanded the business vastly.
Weve rebranded, built a new site, expanded our product
range and grown our customer base. I have been involved
every step of the way. During this period I was also releasing
records and playing gigs across Europe with support from
my booking agents Elastic Artists.
