About me

I am a hardworking, reliable, flexible person who is not afraid of long working hours. I am looking for work in a Sound orientated role. 
I hold a full UK driving license and have my own car. As well as being very reliable I am a fast learner and have an eye for detail. I am a good communicator and get on well with people. 
 I have a BA (Hons) Production from Ravensbourne and an Fda Broadcast Operations degree. This has given me experience in the practical and theoretical elements of making television for broadcast. The degree was very practical and had a large element of paid work experience, including press interviews for Wimbledon and Outside Broadcast work for the Olympic Broadcast Service.
I am also good with dealing with the public having worked in a number of hospitality roles. I have a ProTools User Certification
