About me


I am an organised, reliable, confident individual with a wealth of experience in administrative roles. I am looking for a challenging and multitasking role within the creative industry - I thrive in fast paced environments and am able to work independently and think on my feet; always with the aim of reflecting the company in the service I provide. All of my previous professional experience has involved dealing with organisational duties and customer service - this has included being the first point of contact, both over email and the telephone, updating calendars and schedules and arranging travel and transport for staff and professionals visiting the company, housekeeping, maintaining a database of customers for the companies, archiving and filing and arranging events. In my professional life I have developed flexibility in dealing with different projects and have practical experience in finding solutions and dealing with crisis within a strict deadline, prioritizing tasks and ensuring that the highest standards are consistently met. Finally, in all the positions I have held, I had to interact with customers, to administer PR both for my employer and our customers, provide first class customer service and I was always able to convey the corporate image and values of the company for which I was working. My personal visual work focuses on the influence of social norms on life choices and the emotional interactions between people, always approached through photography. I am very interested in the relationship between reality and fictional representations of it. In my personal and professional work, I have consistently proven that I am a creative, hard-working and reliable individual with a driven desire to learn and succeed. I am looking for a role which would allow me to use and develop my previous professional experience.
