BA ActingThe Arts Educational School
- London, United Kingdom
My love for theatre drove me to training as an actor at Arts Educational Schools London where for me it was about more than just acting. My knowledge of the overall industry grew and developed there, however the spotlight was not for me. My voice and skills were better suited in all the aspects surrounding the work. This led me to volunteer as a production assistant, learning about all aspects of organising shoots and marketing finished products. Deciding over the past couple of years that behind the scenes was far more interesting to me has meant I am keen to move over to the industry that was my first love and find new opportunities.
