Personal Summary - Optional

I am a very hard-working person, I like to do well in everything I put my mind to. Fortunately, I
have a very logical brain - I like to do puzzles, and have always been good at problem
solving. Common sense is something that has always come naturally to me and because of
this I am a very fast learner and learn best on the job. I have always thrived off of the idea of
being able to progress my career to the highest possible standard and work on high-end
projects either in the UK or abroad.
I have been faced with many adversities in my childhood, so have always known to workhard
to get through these situations and never miss an opportunity handed to me.
I am extremely passionate about filmmaking/tv and since young have always wanted to
work on set and be involved in the production side of things. I especially enjoy being involved
in projects that mean something and have an emotional attachment to it.
I love working with other people and being part of team with a collective goal, it makes for
such a lovely environment to work in and makes work that much more fun!
I'm a very caring person when it comes to relationships and work, 100% effort is always put
into every task and the relationships I build.
When I 'm not working you 'll find me either at karate, training & teaching, or walking my dogs
