About me

I am a highly reliable, responsible and hard-working all-rounder. I am a forthright and reasonable team player who has a thirst for knowledge. I come armed with a broad range of experience, which has allowed me to explore the creative pool and develop a strong set of valuable and transferable skills. My career has so far been predominantly focused in the music industry, and I am always looking to broaden my experiences wider. I have a natural way working with artists, and have worked extensively in artist relations, radio, events and television. I am organised, and I relish working in a team of people. I am a real people person and thrive on bringing people and ideas together. • Work extremely well under pressure in a wide range of environments • Constantly enthusiastic, I am determined in everything I do • Personable, ambitious and a fast learner • I pride myself on my ability to get to know and get along with people from all walks of life, quickly and effortlessly • I am a confident person and motivational to others. I always encourage the people around me to feel comfortable and at ease • I have learnt to use my own initiative efficiently, applying my range of skills in the work place, always maintaining attention to detail • I am a natural leader, a problem solver and I take pleasure in helping people.
