Experience Summary

I'm solution orientated with a can do attitude. What i mean by that is if I'm faced with a challenge I'll gather my team and work on solving the problem, I'll always say yes we can and find a way to do it. Managed a variety of campaigns for a wide selection of brands including, Samsung, Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, Bertolli and Sky Go. View my contact details, availability, and stats.

Other Skills

Having been an actor and performer for over 20 years I have the ability to be in the public eye 'performing' in any given scenario, I am an experienced presenter in the sales environment and also in a more entertainment situation i.e cabaret host or master of ceremonies as well as game show or public participation events for example the Macain Potato games was an event where we needed members of the public to take part in a fun obstacle course to win an all expenses paid trip to a theme park in the UK. I am also able to adapt my presenting to include any corporate message, as presenter for the A1GP tyre change challenge at the Sky Festival in Manchester I was required to inform the public when and where you could view the A1GP motoracing and "sell" the new series whilst hosting the event live on stage. Similar events have included store openings for Orange and Currys.
