About me

I am a post graduate with first class honours from the University of Brighton, looking to moving from freelancing to a permanent position to fully utilize and expand my existing skill set. My background and education in media and television has supplied me with excellent knowledge and understanding of the industry and various practical roles. I think of myself as a friendly, level headed individual. Being a fast and eager learner, I bring passionate enthusiasm combined with a professional and dedicated work ethic to the work I undertake, and I’m able to keep a calm mind in stressful situations. I am ambitious, confident and above no task, and I believe I would be an excellent addition to any team. I’m currently looking for entry level positions within the industry. Working as a freelancer in the past year has provided me with invaluable experience adapting to different environments and tasks, and I'm passionate about fully immersing my skill set into a dedicated position.
