About me

Having graduated from university last year with a degree in fine art, I since worked full time as a supervisor in a customer service role, in order to fund a 6month trip to South East Asia. I am looking for a full time supervisor position in the art industry that will allow me to grow and progress, both within a team and as an individual. I love meeting new people so am well suited in a customer facing role. I prefer working in a fast pace environment because I work well under pressure and enjoy using my own initiative. I am a very creative yet strategic thinker who works towards achieving the best results.
