Work history

2015

Runner & Assistant Director

Dusthouse Pictures Ltd

Feb 2015 - Feb 2015
  • For this job, i was part of the Production team filming the advert and online content for the upcoming 'Bend it like Beckham' - the Musical. During this job, i was tasked with co-ordinating over 50 actors as we filmed on the streets of Southall (West London).

2014

Torn Pictures

Jul 2014 - Dec 2014
  • Between August and December of 2014 i was part of the production team filming both 'The Rise of The Krays' and 'The Fall of the Krays'. During this time i learnt to work in an extremely pressured environment, working 14 hours a day, 6-7 days a week.

2012

Freelance Artist

Crew Clothing Company

Aug 2011 - Aug 2012
  • Whilst studying at University, i was approached by Crew Clothing company to produce several hundred small abstract paintings for their various shops across the UK. I think that this job helped me learn how to complete a task under pressure as, often, i was tasked with producing dozens of paintings with only a weeks notice.

2010

Front of House Manager

The Village Coconut Island Thailand

Jan 2010 - Aug 2010
  • Once i had been accepted by Central Saint Martins to undertake a Foundation Diploma starting in September 2010, i decided to use the time leading up to this to see a different part of the world and gain some job experience. I was able to find a job at a resort in Phuket Thailand, working as the Front of House manager. I enjoyed this work greatly and i think i gained a lot of people and language skills from it. I now speak very (very) basic Thai.
