Skills At university i was able to become Treasurer and then President of a music society which allowed me to learn to be in charge of a group of members, dealing with financial requirements,the university and with students.

I'm hard working, organised, prompt, flexible with plenty of experience in construction for Theatre and Film. Experienced with a high number of machine tools and skills in building. Good at problem solving.
