    Additional Information

    My biggest strength is willingness to pull all of my skills into supporting the teams I am working with and bringing everything I can to make the work a success. I am very conscientious and like to complete tasks given to me with perfection and pride.

    About me

    The last seven years have seen me really immerse myself in my work worldwide, learning new cultures, skills and being inspired by the people and the things around me. With that I have brought my unique style to many diverse and unique projects. Most recently I have ventured into the theatre world and onto the West End and would not want anything else than to be apart of it once more.
