About me
I am multi-disciplined creative from South Africa, who has moved to London to further my career. I have an honours degree in Theatre and Performance from the University of Cape Town, and I am currently doing my MA at UAL in directing for film. I have had a long interest in writing, copywriting, editing and photography, and have managed to link my various passions through one defining factor : creative problem solving. I am looking for a challenge and an opportunity to learn. I am a very fast learner, and I am not afraid to get my hands dirty. The more I create, the more I realise the importance of collaboration and the value of team work. I would love the opportunity to work with a team that holds the same values and ideals.
