About me

 

I am a creative new to the London area, seeking work which utilises my skills for visual and textual innovation. My background is in the theatre; in November 2013 I co-founded Broken Arrow Productions, a non-profit theatre company based in Southampton, and was responsible for all aspects of it's day-to-day running, as well as for work as lead producer on all shows, including publicity and social media work. On top of this, I also functioned in a creative aspect, as actor, director, script editor and writer. I also have a strong history in customer facing roles, having worked for the past year and a half as a book dealer in a thriving antiquarian bookshop in Southampton. I was responsible for the daily running of the shop, including ordering stock, buying and selling books, cash handling, liaising with clients, and general maintenance of the shop itself. I will apply myself happily to any and all work put in front of me, and have excellent written and verbal communication skills, and a positive, proactive attitude.
