Experience Summary

I am an actor and a singer based in Glasgow and have worked in the events/experiential marketing sector for the last nine years in the role of event manager, team leader and brand ambassador. In terms of my approach to the wide variety of jobs I have worked on in this line of work, I am highly motivated, extremely adaptable (as the nature of these campaigns change constantly), hard-working, good humoured, highly resourceful, enthusiastic and always very well in teams to achieve the best results for our clients. I am well experienced in event management, hospitality, VIP service, food and drink sampling, alcohol campaigns, new technology/software demonstration, data capture, compère, approaching and engaging members of the public, stand rigging, direct selling, costume/character work and I have also alternated between team leader and brand ambassador in equal measures. What I enjoy most about this line of work is the great diversity of jobs which I get booked on as well as the variety of people I get to meet and work with.
