I absolutely love working within a team, coordinating and managing situations with a creative head, finding solutions for problems as they arise. No job too big or small. I am a fastidious researcher and lateral & creative thinker. I strive to work on meaningful projects which aim to do some good for the world. Good communication skills, proof-reading and editing. Proficient in Photoshop, Lightroom and Illustrator. Good knowledge of Excel, Word and Powerpoint. I also speak Spanish pretty well.Locked Pro Plan feature
