About me

Having spent 7 years working in coordinating and administrative roles within the Danish film festival and film industry, I have gained extensive experience in logistics and coordination, film production, marketing and communication. I work successfully on a range of different tasks across a variety of fields with a proven ability to manage a varied workload and function as gatekeeper for resource - dealing with staff and external partners at all levels to ensure efficient use of resource and clear communication across all channels. I am accustomed to fast paced and challenging working environments. I have a history of showing initiative, taking on more responsibilities and quickly learning new skills. Furthermore, my diverse administrative and coordinating experience has proven itself to be easily transferrable into varying fields which in combination with my ability to learn quickly, makes me a flexible employee that can be of value in more than one area.
