Introduction

I have a broad range of skills that I am looking to enrich and put to work in my idle time around my career. I work full time in my profession but I am always looking for stimulation and to improve the skills I have in hospitality and retail. My retail experience is 5 and a half years; at Roger David, Polo Ralph Lauren, David Jones, Happy Lab and Ermenegildo Zegna. My hospitality experience was 3 years with McDonalds and 1 year with Bright Young Things catering. I was also a DJ for 1 year, and in nightclub promotion for 3 years. I have strong customer service skills and enjoy making sure that clients and guests always have a pleasant if not fantastic experience, in either environment retail or hospitality.
