I am a Costume Trainee, Daily and Designer. I have been working in the TV and Film industry for just under a year. I have experience in design, continuity, dressing crowd and on set standby. I have an eagerness to learn new skills and develop. I have knowledge of costume construction and alterations and have a practical mind.

Throughout my childhood and school days I participated keenly in all things theatrical, a continual motivator to specialise a career in costume. Coming from a costume background in theatre I have relevant experience of the high pressured environment of working in wardrobe and the need for acute organisation, an ability to be adaptable and show initiative.

I am interested in costume from all periods; fantasy, contemporary and period and I enjoy gaining knowledge of clothing from different eras.

Working in a team and helping others is one of my greatest joys and I hope that I am able to maximise on this whilst using my skills and knowledge of textile and costume design in TV and film.

I am a highly enthusiastic, happy, creative and self-motivated professional. I'm extremely hard working and am super excited to continue my journey in the costume department.
