Simon's Profile

Experience Summary

The first thing people usually notice about me is my professional approach to everything I undertake. in all aspects of my life. Having taken some time out of the Promotions world to focus on my personal business ventures, I found myself missing the variety and excitement from Promotional Work, and now am looking to get involved again in my free time. I have had experience in a plethora of different promotional work in the past; working for some high profile clients, and undertaking many roles, including Events Manager. I take pride in any task in hand and produce work to a standard of excellence, combining quality and consistency. I consider myself very approachable, likeable and ensure the job gets done. My Background: I am BSc (Hons) Music Technology graduate from Leeds Metropolitan University and specializing in the field of sound recording, sound editing and sound design within the film and television industry. - so naturally, I am a bit of a film geek, and am very tech savvy. I am computer literate on both PC and Mac and am actually a self taught web designer, having recently pursued the interest in 2014/2015. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
