I am a motivated, tenacious and dependable individual who is able to collaborate well with others. Emerging from a creative background, I have a wide range of experiences that I believe make me extremely adaptable. My current practice involves working within very restrictive constraints including handling minimal budgets, short deadlines and project managing other artists. This has meant I have built strong interpersonal skills and resilience to working under pressure. I am keen to work in an environment that allows me to develop these skills and continually build on my experiences.
