My current ambition is to gain as much experience as possible to build upon my CV, expand my knowledge and skills, and be the best I can possibly be. I strive to gain enough experience to find a permanent job within the media industry.

My future ambition is to provide a helping hand in creating content for others to enjoy in a producing role. I would love to be a producer as that is the part of filmmaking I am most passionate about. Seeing a production come together from nothing gives me great satisfaction, from organising locations to finding extras; knowing it has only been made possible by my hard work is extremely gratifying.

My other interest is the Japanese language and culture. I taught myself to read the two syllabic alphabets; Hiragana and Katakana, in addition to currently learning the logographic characters that are Kanji. In July 2013, I visited Japan for nine days and travelled to Tokyo, Nikko, Hakone and Kyoto - which was amazing. 

頑張る!
