There is a lot going on day to day at the studio, and it all needs to be coordinated and taken care of by someone, and this is where we are looking for you: 

Someone who loves to meet and greet others, who excels in sorting things out, and who likes to put communication (both written and spoken) at the center of what they are doing.
