About me

 

I am an outgoing, efficient and committed individual with a conscientious attitude and a good sense of humour! I enjoy all things artistic; painting, pottery, tie-dye... and everything that involves a glue gun. I love to exercise, enjoying rowing, running and yoga. I love to cook and also enjoy attending festivals, live music, art galleries and interactive events. And I love Elephants! When it comes to work, I thrive in situations where a lot is expected of me and I am given the opportunity to manage a number of responsibilities. I have excellent communication skills and am experienced in liaising with all levels of staff. I am always able to adapt to the needs of the task at hand, finding solutions and working closely with a team. I pride myself on my highly organised and creative nature, happiest when contributing within a group, while also content working independently. I am eager to move out of the world of advertising production. Taking the skills I have acquired, I am looking for a creative platform within project and event management that will allow me to apply my 7 years of experience within the media industry. I am seeking a chance to take on new creative challenges where I can continue to better myself and learn.
