Other Skills and Experience

I am confident taking on large responsibilities, going to meetings or sitting in rehearsals for a designer. I am very organised, have good time keeping skills and I am very resourceful when working with a tight budget. I have a car and I am happy to drive a large van. I have very good knowledge of the prop and costume houses and where and how to source things. I have a full kit of tools, a sewing machine and a variety of materials.
