About me

 

History graduate - Project Assistant. Driven to explore more and keep learning. Since moving to London earlier in the year, I have been working as a freelancer in event production. I have enjoyed enormously the challenges in this work, and have been lucky enough to work within great teams, and for incredibly exciting events. I am hoping to now to further this production experience to more experimental events, as well as film production. I am organised, hardworking, can work under pressure and have excellent communication skills. As well as production experience, I have worked for eight years in customer service, which has ensured I can work calmly and efficiently in fast-paced environments. It also reflects my ability to multi-task, be proactive, problem solve, and interact professionally with customers. I am keen to work in areas of particular interest; art, film, food or history. However, more important to me is the skills I can use (production, research or writing), as well as the team it is based around. I just want a project I can immerse myself in, and make the most of. Challenges welcome.

History and Film

University of Sussex

Sep 2011 - Jul 2014
  • Brighton, UK
  • 2:1. My main focus was in History. I studied a range of topics, from the emergence of the modern world and global trading, including law making, banking systems, trading restrictions, philosophies (later in Enlightenment), religion and 'conservation' - including the national parks and forestry infrastructure. Within History I also studied art, film and music within subcultures, especially 1980s Britain. I wrote my dissertation on women in punk, and spoke about the importance but also pitfalls of re-writing history, as well as who has the 'right' to. The film aspect to my course was also gladly spread around many genres. From early cinema to it's progression, to national cinemas and the importance of them. I set my dissertation within the debates on novel to film adaptation, and focused on the franchise of Sherlock Holmes.
