Baq talent management


A positive and creative individual who specialises in exploring innovative ways to communicate using drama, media
and public relations. Working intensely and passionately within the Media, combined with a natural aptitude for
working with children, has resulted in my ambition to be a part of the children’s entertainment world. I currently
work as a radio-plugger within music promotions at Universal Music Group - Polydor Records, developing artists
and applying a range of skills that have contributed to longer-lasting and stronger relationships with clients and
successful promotion of music globally. I am a weekly radio
Presenter for Reprezent Radio 107.3 FM, producing my own content, features, games, research and questions for
music interviews, as well as online blogging. Previously working as an intern within children’s television at
Cbeebies further encouraged my ambition to create something amazing within Children’s television. I want to
advocate and develop new ways to encourage and inspire children’s imaginations leading to the advanced wellbeing
of young people. I always aim to being articulate and professional, having a strong belief in setting high standards
combined with sourcing efficient and creative ways to achieving results. I am a self-motivated, passionate and
highly personable individual, with abounding energy and enthusiasm that is applied to all projects I am involved in
and is a distinct part of my character.
