Throughout my High School Years I had been interested in Art & Design and Drama which has lead me to pursue a career that has brought these to passions together in something I greatly enjoy: Prop Making. I graduated from East 15 Acting School in July 2014 with a BA Hons 2.1 Degree in Stage Management and Technical Theatre. I specialised/majored in Props and chose Costume to specialise as a minor subject. Throughout my time at East 15 I also tried to keep myself up-to-date with and help other departments to gain valuable skills in Construction, Lighting and Stage Management. I am at the beginning of my, hopefully, long career. Fresh out of University, I hope to have a career in Prop Making where I can get into and work with Makeup/Prosthetics, Scenic Art, Sculpting, Puppetry and Costume-Props. I would like to experience working in all forms of Media/Entertainment: Film, Television, Film, Live Events/Action Role Play, Simulations along with more Theatre.
A part-time role to get some income while looking for Prop Roles. I like being able to sustain myself to then be able to do Work Experience and travel to Props/Art Department Roles
