Personal Statement

It’s almost 5 years since I walked into the office at Engine House Media with no experience or any idea what I was getting myself into. So as you can imagine, for me EHM has been a place of learning, growing and making a mistake or two.

 

Being part of a progressive company has been an incredibly exciting
and challenging experience. This has instilled in me a passion for the workings and growth business. The various roles I have has within the company demanded adaptability and a keen mind in order to ride the constant changes and challenges to effectly develop the way we work. 

 

I firmly believe in the value of enabling others to work by creating processes and documents that make life easier, allowing people to do what they do best and spend energy bringing the human aspect to what they do; creativity and personality.
