I am a highly organized person having worked in close proximity to managers, curators, artists, directors and designers throughout my previous work. Having initially trained in the arts I consider myself to be a creative individual; that allows me to think outside the box and means I am not shy to turn my hand to different tasks that I may be unfamiliar with. I consider myself to be a caring and considerate person, and have always offered my full support to my team.
