Resume posted by Brandeal in Arts and Culture.
Desired position type: Full-Time.


My background is in the music and performing arts industries and I thrive in creative atmospheres. My life motto is I want to run the show instead of being the show. My career goal is to run the show by moving toward a management role in the arts and entertainment. I do not just want to be an observer of the creative process. I am a hands-on individual who wants to be intricately involved in the inner workings of the arts and entertainment world.
