About me

 

I am a confident, ambitious individual who thrives working in the busy, dynamic environments the Media and Event industries provide. Being focused and time conscious is something I pride myself on, along with having strong organisational skills and attention to detail. I thoroughly enjoy a challenge and constantly look for ways to improve and progress. My experience to date, working across large scale, multi-layered campaigns and events, for two of the biggest media owners in the country, stands me in excellent stead to seize my next challenge in the industry.
