Professional Profile

Coming from a wide variety of work experiences from sports coach to caterer to
graphic designer, I have learned a variety of things from many different people.
A couple reoccurring themes that have helped me in every situation is a positive
attitude and an attention to detail. In my experiences, I’ve learned that staying
positive and reading the room will result in the most effective outcomes. Amidst the
rest of the skills I have learned along the way, I carry these two into every work
place, ready to be keen to the atmosphere and be a positive light in the environment.
