About me

 

I very much enjoy working closely with, and meeting new people.I have worked in many customer service focused roles and have been praised for my social skills. I have had a strong interest in drama and I often go to the theatre and like to keep up to date with new film and television productions. I am also passionate about playwriting and was a member of the Royal Court Young Writers Programme. In October 2013 I wrote, cast and directed a play that was performed at The Bierkeller Theatre in Bristol. This involved arranging auditions and casting actors, booking and timetabling rehearsal spaces, sourcing and liaising with the venue, designing set and acquiring props and costume, and marketing and publicity. I enjoy reading, live music, cooking and visiting galleries. I have also been a DJ on a freelance basis in Bristol, and have helped organise and manage club nights in Bristol and London. I enjoy charity work and have previously organised charity fundraising events.
