About me

With a strong interest in arts and community led events and a desire to increase accessibility to a more diverse audience, my excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to adapt my approach to the individual enables me to thrive in a public facing role. My background in a gallery environment and involvement in setting up participatory events has given me the conviction and confidence to pursue a career within the creative arts sector. Currently I am working at the Arnolfini in Bristol as Events Assistant, whilst also practicing as a freelance events and arts photographer
