I am seeking the opportunity to accelerate my personal and professional growth within a role that rewards hard work, ambition and drive. I am looking to combine my creativity and outgoing personality in order to achieve success within an exciting company. I am a self-motivated, enthusiastic, gregarious individual, who strives in busy work environments. I am a strong critical thinker and communicator, can multi-task well, I`m confident in dealing with clients, and work well as part of a team. I am outgoing and sociable, and believe I possess the enthusiasm, focus and drive the industry demands and have the creative mind sought by prestigious companies. I am a great lover of attending gigs, galleries, parties; I love social media and have a true passion for music and sports. I’m extremely active and chase excitement and believe a wandering mind should be free to do just that. It is apparent to me that being creative is where I should be, so until I find myself there, I’ll keep looking.

The course provides a challenging and thought-provoking understanding of sound and music in a variety of cultural and media contexts. It offers insights into social and technical issues in contemporary music and enables you to independently produce new sonic solutions in your creative production work. Through theory and practical work i was able to engage with imaginative sound design for film and other media, digitally produce and remix music, as well as produce critical essay and research work. Throughout the final year, i was supported through a set of bespoke production and research projects that require reflective analysis and independent planning, providing me with a career path and a showcase portfolio.
