Throughout my career, I have worked with entertainment companies in various positions that have allowed me to expand my business and creative skill sets in communication, people management, and project management. I have always been recognized as someone who exceeds all expectations thanks to exceptional follow-through, strong interpersonal skills and personal work ethics. I am very adept in communicating and working with people at all levels, including executives, and as such I am thick-skinned and can work extremely well under pressure, while keeping attention to detail and maintaining quality work.

I am currently seeking opportunities with a company that is in need of a professional with: (1) strong oral and written communication skills including editing and proofreading; (2) project management experience in a business and film environment; and (3) proven people management.
