About me

Recently graduated in BA (Hons) Set Design for Screen at UAL’s Wimbledon College of Arts, here I developed the technical skills to excel within the art department of film and television. Having always had a passion for spacial design, experience in film has allowed me to adapt this passion to the lens and narrative. I have been described as being a professional and hard working individual with adaptable skills and focused on the detail. The roles I have most enjoyed have been on set in standby art direction, as well as developing my skills in hand drafting and graphics design.

With excellent teachers in hand drafting, CAD drawing, sketchup model making, white card models, colour models, etc. The course also taught me about the importance of research and understanding the collaborative nature of the this career. It allowed me to gain experience with lots of different types of crews, working with professionals through work placements but also seeing projects through from start to finish with high quality student filmmakers.

  • The foundation course steered me to the direction of film and television by offering work placements at Bay Studios, Swansea. I loved the experiences I had there on both small and large scale productions, persuading me to consider applying to Wimbledon College of Arts in order to get the right training for this career path.
