I am a hard-working individual with a love for stage management, however am always keen to expand my learning and skills. I pride myself on my people and organisation skills and put my best efforts into every show I do. I stand for change when it is needed and will fight for mine and my co-workers’ beliefs to make sure everyone I work with is happy and safe.
