I strive to be a confident, self-motivated, competent person who is naturally resourceful and enthusiastic. I would consider myself an all rounded creative person with an innovative eye who thrives under pressure especially in a multi-tasking environment. I have experience in event planning and organisation, project management, promotion, marketing, budgeting, social media, fundraising and band management. I have worked in Paris, London and New York City.
