About me

I am a hardworking and willing individual; I was previously educated in Kilburn and commuted to London on a daily basis, making me appreciating the commitment of a daily commute. I was then educated in Saffron Walden, whilst working at the Saffron Walden Golf club as a waiter, as well as cleaning at holiday homes and the school itself to make a living in between my studies. I have also worked some informal part time jobs in the past, including working for a large flooring company, gardening and general labouring. I also received work experience from Granite 5, web designers based near Cambridge and Mercedes Benz. This work has meant I have had to adapt to work with different people and use communication skills as well as following exact instructions and learning technological knowledge. I also enrolled in an enrichment course in photography, alongside my GCSE qualifications as well as regular guitar and occasional piano lessons. I am a keen musician, and have been playing since the age of 8, developing my personal development of music production, teaching myself; Logic Pro X, drums and bass guitar, writing music for my own personal enjoyment and development. I have been involved in the performance aspect of music as well, performing and assisting charity gigs, festivals and other music/arts events. I have played at notable events, such as the rhythms of the world festival with the artist Shaun Colwill, and at the Bedford in Balham. During 2014 I participated in a gold arts award program, involving teaching young children how to play, learn and write music. I have continued my interest and education in music on and achieved a diploma in music at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance, perceived by many as Europe’s finest contemporary music school. I have a keen interest in photography and media production, having learnt applications such as Magix Vegas, Final Cut X, After Effects and Photoshop CC 17, as well as being proficient in the use of SLR cameras and DSLR cameras for cinematography and photography. I worked with the YouTuber KSI in the production of the music video ‘Keep Up’ as an extra and met an array of people working in the YouTube scene during the shoots, aiding me with my interest in new media production. I have also personally experimented with different forms of new media, including a YouTube channel. During this time I have also co-founded a social media consultancy company, www.talksocial.media launched summer 2016. I previously worked as a content creator at Quite Great PR based in Cambridge, alongside running TalkSocial, creating a variety of video and still products as well as updating content on their website, running their YouTube channel (Quite Great TV), and assisting with the social media and graphic design elements of the business. I currently hold a full UK driving license.
