I have worked in a strong small independent record label for 2 years, helping in all areas, from ad-hoc duties to web maintaining, regional PR, Metadata processing and general assistance to the Manager and Director. I also have worked in several companies over 3 years as a Press Assistant, working on various bands, record labels and large scale events, covering regional, online and national PR.
Other work has been within events, working onsite on production etc, and also running a street team.
I am currently working for a jewellery designer, and working as a waitress, as well as taking a short evening course in stained glass and have recently begun studying metal welding which i enjoy greatly.
I still hold a strong passion for the music and events industry as well as other media avenues so these areas of work will also be of great interest.
I'm primarily looking for any ad-hoc or part time work, if it is related to my prior areas of experience that would be great, but i also would love to throw myself into anything new.
I also enjoy traveling, meeting new people and spending my time going to music festivals and gigs. I am very hard working, quick to learn, reliable and excel both when working alone or in a team.
