Jo's Profile

Experience Summary

I am a warm and friendly individual, with strong organisational abilities, happy to interact with members of the public and business colleagues of all kinds. I was a professional actress for 7 years but always supported my earnings with promotional and event work. For the past 32 months I have been working every weekend as a Regional Field Manager for one of the world's leading imaging brands. This has resulted in a real passion for photography and digital imaging. I am now looking for additional promotional work to help fill the days from Monday - Friday each week View my contact details, availability, and stats.
