About me

An ambitious, personable and highly creative individual with a natural aptitude for coordination. My interests compliment my professional endeavours in film making, event services and media communications. I enjoy developing my skills in a hands on manner and thrive on the opportunity to show ability. I recognise that communication and common sense are essential in a fast paced environment. Likewise a calm nature and sense of humour are of equal value at times.
