My name is Jonny. I'm 23 years old and a recent Film Graduate looking to begin a career within the industry. I believe in working hard at what I do in life, and that I'll only get back what I put in. I have a very hands on approach to my work, and life in general, and I love to challenge myself in whatever I do. Most importantly, I understand the importance of enjoying myself, and so greet everything I'm involved in with enthusiasm and positivity. I'm usually described by others as laid back and friendly, and I can get on with everyone I meet. Being fresh out of university with little experience of actually working in the industry, the best I can offer is a whole lot of enthusiasm and a genuine willingness to learn as much as I can. I've a long way to go, but I'm very excited to begin what I hope will be a long and successful career!
