Barney's Profile

Experience Summary

I am an interesting character, whose life has had many unusual twists and experiences, much of them in my professional life. I have been involved in the 'Industry' for 9 years, and have had plenty of involvement across the board in terms of the different sub-genres of promotions - sampling, event managing, merchandising, presenting, rigging, mystery shopping, acting, photography/filming, reporting etc etc. I still appreciate the freedom this worklife gives me, so that I am able to persue my interests of music production, sport and travel at will, and yet I think I still retain a great enthusiasm after so long, perhaps because I manage to balance things so well.
