About me

 

My professional roles, combined with my music career have provided me with readily transferable knowledge, skills and abilities. I have strong interpersonal and communication skills, both written and oral and an easy-going personality that puts people at ease. I am a team player who takes the initiative and enjoys leadership roles. I thrive in a creative environment and have lived and travelled throughout Africa, Europe and North America. I have a flexible, can-do attitude that allows me to adapt quickly and comfortably to new situations. My flexibility allows me to work efficiently alone or as part of a team. I function well under pressure and have an ability to learn quickly. I enjoy working with people of different nationalities and cultural backgrounds.
