I am a lifelong arts and culture obsessive, and I use this in my work to excel. I am committed to excellence in my field, and I prioritise having an eye for detail, clear communication skills and keeping diversity and inclusion at the forefront. I pride myself on my proactivity, positive attitude and open-minded approach.
