Victoria's Profile

Experience Summary

I went to University and worked in London as a Medical Technician for 5 years. As a hobby I was DJing and this developed into me getting gigs at the weekend and eventually being offered a residency in Ibiza. I decided to leave my job in 2001 and have worked every summer in Ibiza ever since, play all over the world and I do promotional work in between. I have also recently set up my own business with my partner which involves filming of music events, and we own a couple of media related websites. I enjoy swimming, I attend the gym regularly, ran 5km for Race for Life and 10Km on the GMR and raised £1100 for Cancer Research and £1600 for Diabetes UK respectively. I am also currently learning how to speak Spanish. I spend a fair amount of time on computers and can use most Microsoft office programs and a variety of music programs. I also hold a full driving licence and own a car. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
