Personal Profile: I am a diligent hardworking individual who is currently seeking employment within your company. I believe my excellent communication skills gained from previous employment will be an attribute to your organization. I function well as part of a team and have had many years’ experience working alongside other people in different capacities. I have worked as team member and team leader and I am equally capable in both these roles. However I enjoy and can be relied upon to work as an individual, without supervision when required. I have recently completed a Bachelors Degree in Creative Music Technology at Leeds Metropolitan University (Grade Pending), and am now seeking full time employment in an apt role. My primary passion is composing; everything from pop songs to library music and film scoring. I am a keen user of MIDI keyboards, synthesizers and software VST patches in my home composing setup, and am passionate about employing the hardware and software to the best possible use in order to achieve the desired results for my work. My employment history includes a working gap year in Australia, where I enjoyed a rewarding venture working at several positions across the country. Key Skills: • Strong customer service skills acquired through working in the service industry. • Excellent communication skills and the ability to liaise at all levels. • Ability to work to target and deadlines in a fast moving environment. • Adaptable and fixable to meet any changes that may arise. • A sound insight of customer requirements. • A standard level of typing skills. • Computer literate. • Ability to work well in a team as well as using my own initiative. Hobbies and Interests: I enjoy socializing and meeting new people, as I believe myself to be a confident individual. I’m a keen musician and songwriter, and am currently involved in the recording of an album, as well as engaging in a hobby and ultimately a desired career in scoring music for film and television. I constantly practise composition for moving image, often for wildlife features, by using orchestral sample-sample based software Miroslav Philharmonik with Apple Mac home engineering software Logic Pro, often to David Attenborough documentaries; although I have also previously enjoyed composing alternative scores for some of my favourite movie scenes. Whilst still at University I made the most of the recording studio bookings so I could also include real acoustic instruments on several pieces. My interest in composing also comprises an interest in writing and popular music. I recently began a part-time business with a friend which involves writing, recording and shooting pop songs and videos for aspiring and amateur young performers. I am also very interested in the compositions of ‘jingles’ and ‘bits’ often utilised in the television industry. Aside from music and sound, another keen interest of mine is creative writing, a pursuit I have had since a young age, which has involved short stories and prose, poetry and script writing. A passion for reading has always accompanied and fuelled this interest. Employment History: July 2008 – Present Punch Group Inc.
