I am a designer whose primary medium is weave design and creation. My education and personal experiences have led me to working simultaneously within many different artistic media. This has all fed into my work and has taught me to successfully multitask. Combined with my great interpersonal skills and my ability to tackle new tasks in a calm and efficient way, I can become a valued member of your team. I am looking to work within a creative and vibrant atmosphere. I want to be a member of a diligent team where I can listen, observe and react, with a view to contributing, while improving myself as an employee.
