 about me 

For over fifteen years I have worked in the Performing Arts Industry in a range of capacities. To date all my jobs whether within teaching or in sales / customer service have involved working with the public which I enjoy and get great job satisfaction from. I have excellent communication skills allowing me to work well with a wide range of people and work well as part of a team. I am also confident when working alone. I have a positive attitude and approach to challenges. I am hardworking, reliable and trustworthy and show my dedication and commitment within the workplace. I show initiative and creativity which often has a positive effect. I am enthusiastic, self-motivated and have an approachable manner. I can use the range of skills I have gained throughout my career and adapt to working within many environments. I can work flexibly and have demonstrated my ability to learn quickly within the workplace. Please read my directing page to get more of an in-depth insight into my experience and how it relates to both teaching and directing. Also, the lives we impact and want to.
