In 2021 I graduated from BIMM Manchester with a degree in BA (Hons) Event Management with a 2:1 grade. I am highly motivated and passionate about music, enough so that I moved from New Zealand to be a part of this industry. I enjoy working in a team and equally I am confident at working to my own initiative and prioritising tasks. I work well under pressure and I understand the need for professionalism at all times particularly when in close proximity to artists.

Other information:

After completing my school studies in 2012 I spent the next 5 years working various jobs ranging from hospitality to office work and even coaching cheerleading teams. Over the duration of these 5 years I have also spent a total of 13 months volunteering in an orphanage in Ghana. My experiences in Ghana demonstrate that I can adapt easily to challenging situations and communicate with people from all backgrounds and cultures. My time working alongside children has taught me extreme patience and how to remain calm in difficult situations. I am hard working, reliable and trustworthy.
