About me

I am currently unemployed after making a conscious decision to leave my role with probation. I would now like to get back into my creative element as I feel this is truly the best fit for me. I am a motivated individual with great creative instincts, I have worked on w wide range of events from the Vougue Festival to small cocktail receptions. I pay great attention to detail and take pride in the service i provide. I have great communication and organisational skills and I am always willing and ready to learn new things. I'm looking for a new opportunity that will allow me to express my creativity and make use of the skills I have learnt during my professional years.
