Her passions lie in camera, lighting and sound in film, but she enjoys all ends of the production process. She has knowledge of various graphics and film packages and equipment as well as darkroom photography from studying Media Arts at Melbourne University. Six years teaching English and Media to Western Isles teenagers has honed her organisational and people skills and her ability to work under pressure Her aim now is to develop her skills in all areas of Media – from pre to post production – and she seeks experience particularly in production assistant and runner roles.
