About me

A highly creative individual with an enthusiastic and positive approach to work; confident, adaptable and highly motivated to further a career in venue management and operations. I originally trained as an actor but am now looking to use my creative skills and theatrical knowledge to facilitate and support the work of others. My approach to work is enthusiastic and positive, complimented by exemplary communication and organisational skills. I’m quick to learn, coping with whatever is thrown at me with a good sense of humour, and always maintaining a cool head when the pressure is on.
