I have extensive experience in the film and photography industry, as well as general business management and direct sales/mail order. I am a qualified TEFL teacher, which helps me stay in touch with the way cross cultural communication takes place. I am well read and have traveled extensively, with a special interest in cross cultural communication. I am in the final year of a degree in Creative Writing.
