    About me

    I'm a 22-year-old Drama graduate based near London. For 12 years I went to a stage school and I studied theatre through-out my entire academic career. However, film has always been my true passion. I've been a movie fan for as long as I can remember - my extensive DVD collection is larger than my library, meticulously organised and well-loved. In more recent years, television has also gained my interest with high-budget productions such as 'Game of Thrones' and 'Downton Abbey'.

    I was a professional actor as a child, appearing in Working Title's 'Nanny McPhee' (2005) and Tiger Aspect's 'The Catherine Tate Show' (2006), as well as a short film called 'Harry' with the National Film and Television School. But now I'm looking for experience behind the camera.

    Honestly, I do not have a specific role I wish to fulfil. I'm willing to try my hand at anything. For 5 years, I was Stage Manager of all musicals and drama productions at St Crispin's School and Sixth Form. In my final year of university, I was an actor, set-builder, member of the Special FX & Make-Up team and the Props Manager for Loughborough’s 2016 Theatre Practice performance. I was honoured to be awarded the ‘Unsung Hero’ award by the cast and crew at the end of the production run. All of this experience has made me realise that I thrive behind-the-scenes. I'm enthusiastic, creative and hard-working.

    I'm experienced in working with children and animals (both on production sets and off).

    Additional Information

    I have worked as a receptionist in large and small firms. This has given me experience handling correspondence between clients and staff in person and via email and phone. I've operated the switchboard for the British section of the Johnson & Johnson Medical company and distributed security passes to their main office. Additionally, I have coordinated VIP visitors, meeting room bookings and boardroom preparation. One of my jobs included post-room duties. I assisted other members of staff in internal projects and helped to prepare training courses. One time, I designed and produced World Cancer Day flyers for internal distribution. I also have experience as a database administrator, inputing data to CRM systems and updating client information.

    I love reading, politics (American and British) and traveling. I did a four-month tour of Asia, New Zealand and Australia in 2017. This helped me to gain experience independently organising accommodation, transport, tour bookings and voluntary work. I completed personal challenges such as skydiving, black water rafting, abseiling, Great Barrier Reef diving, waterfall climbing and mountain climbing, cliff jumping and bungee jumping, cooking classes and I attended a surf camp. I volunteered at an elephant sanctuary, preparing their food, feeding and bathing them and cleaning up the park. I also assisted at the dog rescue centre on-site. During this time, I maintained a travel journal.

    At university, I was a member of the campaign team for the position of Loughborough Education Executive Officer (2016), which included a two-month programme of creating videos and posters, door-to-door advocacy of the campaign and the candidate, and distribution of promotional materials.

    I'm very adept with computers (e.g. Microsoft Office, all forms of social media). I consider myself proficient at online research, with excellent presentation and numeric skills. Intermediate level of French (reading and speaking).
