Work history
    Audio Visual TechnicianV&A
    London, United KingdomFreelance
    I support a wide variety of audio visual requests for internal and external clients within the museum, at times in a team but mostly unsupervised. Ranging from ADB theatre stage lighting, PA sound setups, film screenings, wireless conference microphone systems, interview recordings and live sound engineering. Fast paced and time critical this role greatly strengthened my problem solving ability to forecast tech issues before they developed.
    Multimedia TechnicianV&A
     - London, United KingdomFull Time
    A multifaceted and dynamic role within the digital media and publishing department at the V&A. In my time here I was responsible for creating a wide variety of multimedia content and digital media campaigns on and off site. Archiving close to 15 years of pre-existing video/motion media assets, whilst at the same time liaising with museum departments and curatorial staff to help script, produce and commission digital media for exhibitions, library archive and conservation. This role called on a wide range of skills and disciplines often in time critical situations, from photography to documentary film making, audio recording to post digital editing.
