Curriculum Vitae

I am an Experience Designer and Creative Strategist with 7 years experience in the events and entertainment space and a strong operational background. While being fluent in Adobe Suite, SketchUp and AutoCAD, my skills are focussed on 3D modelling, site design/layouts and graphic design.

Working on site, managing large teams, is where I feel most at home. I like to get my hands dirty and immerse myself completely into my projects. I am a confident communicator and thrive under pressure.

Interests

My biggest passion in life is travelling. I love to explore different cultures and learn new, unimaginable things. Having recently returned from a 6 month trip in India, and previously spent a year in South and Central America, I have become driven by community development through the arts. I like to spend time abroad becoming integrated within the communities I travel in, developing relationships while working on a number of local projects in architecture and festival production. 

 

Travelling also allows me to combine two of my favourite things in life; food and people. There can be nothing sweeter than bringing people from different backgrounds around a table to enjoy cuisines from around the world.

I am a huge advocate for mental health and self care, and express this through regular yoga and meditation. Nature also plays a huge part in this, so I also find a great release taking care of my urban jungle at home.
