About me


An adaptable and responsible graduate, who utilises the skills I have acquired throughout professional experiences. Throughout my degree I productively combined my studies with work and other commitments showing myself to be ambitious, self-motivated, organised and capable of working in high pressure situations. I have a clear, logical mind with a practical approach to problem solving and a drive to see tasks through to completion. I enjoy working both on my own initiative as well as being part of a team. In short, I am reliable, trustworthy, hardworking and eager to learn and have a genuine interest in the art world.
