Social Networking

I am passionate about the power of social media and believe them to be important in modern business. I am competent with Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube, LinkedIn and Instagram.


Performing Arts 

Team work is an important part of any creative practice and for me is one of the most enjoyable aspects on the Performing Arts. Building lost lasting relationships with people throughout the process as you conquer new challenges and projects together, learning how the other works and the best way to support fellow team members.

Cooking and Baking

I believe a healthy body is dictated by the food we consume and as such cooking is something I take a huge interest in. Finding new recipes and creating something that not only looks good but also tastes great and is good for the body is something I greatly enjoy. I especially like cooking for my friends and hosting dinner parties which require planning and good time keeping skills.

Film Analysis

Working as a writer alongside studying films has lead me to enjoy the close analysis of the ethics in the media. Being socially aware is incredibly important to being a good creator of media and also to work effectively as part of a team. This analysis also allows me to pay close attention to details, which in turn allows me to be aware of anything counter-productive.
