Thanks for reading my profile!

A bit about me:

I'm a happy, concientious and motivated person. I do my very best at each job I am given and take pride in all that I do. I have graduated from the University of Exeter with a 2:1 BA honors in Film Studies and Visual Culture. I begin my MA in Cinematography at the MET Film School London, in October 2018. 

Hobby wise- Keen traveller, active and love to try new things! I climbed Mnt Kilimanjaro in 2016 for the Diamond Duke of Edinburgh Award and raised over £1000 for under-priviledged children. I am bilingual in German and English. I play the piano to a grade 7 level and play sports such as Touch Rugby, snowboarding, skating and Horseriding. I'm very creative and and very interested in photography as well as producing my own oil paintings. I have my own car and a clean UK full Driving licence. My motto in life: "Life is short and the world is wise; open heart, open mind." 

Some previous Experience:

In August 2016 and again from October to December 2016, I was very fortunate enough to become a Camera Trainee for the new DC's Wonder Woman feature film reshoots. I have also since been a Camera Asssistant and Trainee for short film "Alarm" by Adam Singodia, a Frankie Stew music Video and "Take a break with...Diet coke and Refinery29" in the last year (2018).
