About me

 

I thoroughly enjoy - and thrive on - working in a fast paced, creative environment and pride myself on producing a variety of high quality events. I have more than 5 years experience as an events producer, branching across various mediums and operating beyond the traditional requisites of an Events Manager. I enjoy realising the vision of my clients and stakeholders, and utilise my experience, own knowledge and personal interests to do this. My experience includes the management of several international projects. On a personal level I love to see guests interacting and enjoying themselves at events that I have produced seeing and feeling the reactions of attendees.
