Comments and Things Worth Noting:
I'm a collaborative person, excellent at building rapport and fostering mutually beneficial relationships within or in charge of a team. I'm also a rapid learner and am always actively seeking to expand my knowledge and have a finger-on-the-pulse attitude to shifting technology. Since 2012 I've attended twenty one 2-10 day workshops including ones on: Marketing & Distribution, Scheduling & Budgeting, Advanced Story Structuring, Editing & location Sound, Documentary Filmmaking, Location Scouting.
I've also had acting training in Lee Strasburg methodology (Jan -August 2017), Meisner technique and physical comedy with some highly respected teachers and am also a visual artist and have spent 60 hours + reading and studying psychology and philosophy, which I'm interested in. Physical fitness and health is also something that's important to me and I regularly cycle long distances, like hiking in the wilderness, and enjoy having a kickabout.
