    About me

    I have recently moved to London from Sydney, Australia. The majority of my employment has been based in the television industry. I have also worked in theatre along with other areas of media. Most of my training and experience lies in both the Costume and Art Department where I have taken on roles such as Production Designer, Costume Standby, Costume Assistant, Set Dresser, Props Co-ordinator, Props Assistant. My most recent employment was with Channel 7, working on the Australian television drama Home and Away as Costume Standby. I have a great work ethic, excellent attention to detail and great time management skills. I'm not afraid of any challenge. I welcome new experiences and am happy to try new roles.
