About me

 

I have a passion for the arts, organising events and connecting with creative people. With an artistic mind-set and an eye for detail I embrace new challenges with great enthusiasm, adapting easily to varied work environments. I am self motivated and enjoy finding creative solutions to problems. Experienced using Adobe Indesign, Premiere Pro and updating website content. I recently finished an internship with the NGO Elephant Family and am now looking for new opportunities - ideally, a full-time position or paid internship in a creative, fun and fast paced environment.
