    About me

    I am an enthusiastic, creative and hardworking graduate of a BSc Film Production Technology degree course at Staffordshire University for which I was taught using state-of-the-art, industry standard equipment. I am a team player as well as being able to use my own initiative to think creatively and outside the box. I am interested in working at an entry level position in order to learn the craft and enhance the fundamental skills that I gained at university.

    Additional Information

    I am a passionate cinephile with an admiration for all genres. However, I hold a particular passion for the work of auteurs Stanley Kubrick, Zhang Yimou, Quentin Tarantino, and Martin Scorsese. Their work has given me a great appreciation of pairing a unique style with a strong script.
