I have worked in the costume industry for 5 years predominantly in theatre (West end, Disney, Virgin, Opera Holland Park). Since moving to Bristol in March 2019 I have focussed on developing my career in the T.V. and Film industry.

I have recently finished a trainee (on set & truck) position on the ITV Crime drama Invisible, which at times I acted as junior assisting the standby with principles. Since then I have been a costume standby on two commercials and been a daily on various jobs. 

I'm a creative, calm problem solver, with great communication skills and an enthusiasm to learn.
