Good presentation with a friendly and confident personality

I have clear communication skills and good social awareness. Working in a number of productions and projects has set my team working skills in very high level. My patience and professionalism has been praised by my employers and colleagues.

High level of integrity and professionalism

I am very reliable and perfectly organised.
Working at exhibitions and events have taught me commercial awareness.
At Nokia Theater I was in charge of sound, light, and electrical departments. I grew very good at prioritising my duties, working well under pressure and managing my time effectively.

Ability to manage a diverse range or tasks

During my years at university we couldn't always fill up all required roles in a crew. This meant a great deal of multitasking. I have worked in successful productions where I was a producer, runner, boom operator, caterer and  make-up artist at the same time.

Computing skills

Writing and presentation: Microsoft Office, Open Office, Google Drive and Adobe
Audio: ProTools 10, Qlab
Light: Daslight
