About me

I'm a Film & TV Production graduate with 5 years experience of working within the film, television, commercials and events industry. After quickly progressing from assistant to manager in those 5 years, I'm looking to move into the Events industry as I believe my understanding of running film shoots from a logistical and creative point of view would lend itself well to an event based position.
