I'm enthusiastic, hardworking and willing to get stuck in, used to working on my own initiative and a very good team player. I can keep a clear head and find good solutions quickly under stressful situations. I am used to working with tight deadlines and keeping within budget. I have very good computer skills. I'm good at keeping the crew and the location owners happy and finding creative ways to service the locations without costing too much. I am very experienced at dealing with the public and removing obstacles, so the crew can keep filming. I have good local knowledge of Bristol, the South West and South Wales. The most important thing to me is doing a good job.

I have passed the BBC Risk Management of Productions Part 1 & 2 course three times and the BBC Safe Design & Set Construction Course. I have a Full Driving Licence with entitlement to drive 7.5 tonne trucks C1 & D1. I also have a fork lift licence - reach & counterbalance. (It did come in handy a couple of times!)
