    About me

    I am a creative and committed individual with skills and knowledge of costume construction and experience working in various professional running wardrobe departments. I am capable of producing high quality work within a limited time frame and work well under pressure. Being a friendly and upbeat person means I love to work as part of a team but also have the ability to work independently as I can think quickly on my feet and take initiative. I am a fast learner and am willing to try my hand at anything in a positive and industrious manner. Mainly I am a reliable and organised individual who has the passion and willingness to learn, explore and to work hard to achieve the highest standards. Lastly I am a determined and ambitious person who excels when faced with a new challenge and I never lose my enthusiasm for work because I really love working in costume.
