Summary

Now in my fifth year working within the advertising industry, I've developed the ability to solve problems and find better ways to manage situations. While producing stand-out campaigns is something that excites me, I thrive off the challenge of overcoming the tough days with a calm mind and building strong relationships with my clients and my colleagues. I'm about interrogating the work to achieve higher levels of success for the company and its partners, seeking out revenue opportunities, winning against the odds and finding more effective solutions to deliver stronger results. Given my ambitions to continually succeed in everything I do, I'm excited for what the future holds.
