    Creative - I have a good eye for photography and film making. I can help with any digital marketing, online presence or simply taking great photos of your cause.
    Technical - I work with bands and musicians as an audio engineer so I am very capable when it comes to day-to-day technological faults.
    Independent - In my spare time there's nothing I enjoy more than a solo camping trip or a long day hike, I can keep myself occupied and entertained for days on end with my endless stream of puns and "dad jokes".
