Nicky Thompson - Artist / Photographer

I am a friendly, energetic, self-motivated, conscientious, perfectionist inspired by new challenges, I am pro-active and keen to learn more. Being a naturally good communicator, listener and having a perceptive nature, I thrive on working collaboratively and can also lead with innovation. Being committed, reliable, trustworthy and loyal together with my ability to make work fun and rewarding, makes me an ideal person to work with, in any capacity.
