About me

 

Career Summary: A creative and respected manager, with a specific ability to prioritise projects with effective time management that keeps in line with briefs and supports any team to drive daily goals and targets. No matter the business a key skill employed whilst working is problem solving; resolving any challenge whilst adhering to briefs and budgets. With a mix of creative flair and business orientated intelligence the product of my work is multifaceted and desired. Personal: My life experience has allowed me to become strong-willed and extremely hard working. I had moved to New York at sixteen to learn more about TV and Film at the New York Conservatory of Dramatic Arts where I found my love for the technical side of film production. Upon moving back to England four years later I joined a course that allowed me to obtain, externally, a Diploma in teaching performance from TCL. Whilst working full-time in a retail environment since my return I have now become extremely well versed in sales and management. I will soon obtain my BA (Hons) certification in addition to my previous qualifications and hope to also obtain a PGCE in teaching in addition to my diploma. Currently building a small company that specialises in low-budget short films my future goal is to become a development manager or producer at a film production company. I am a hard-working individual and whilst I have recently found out I am dyslexic I will always be someone who enjoys achieving their targets and working against a deadline.
