I am a most interested in bringing people to places and creating memorable moments at events which people can capture and allow others to experience through sharing. I love meeting and speaking to new people and helping them connect the dots be it through assisting them with their professional development or supporting them find their next steps within the creative industry, be it through research or networking. My love for talking has let to me strengthening me skills to become an engaging and confident facilitator at varied workshop events. I approach any task creatively from ideation to problem solving - with a keen eye for detail. Outside of this - I love music and hope to one day implement, design and develop amazing events that connect people to music and places.
