I’ve recently returned from a three-month trip to Los Angeles – part holiday and part networking to get a feel for what the industry is like out there. It’s not easy and nothing will just fall into your lap. However, if you have the determination and the passion to follow your dreams, then going to
Back in 2008 I started crewing with Showmasters at their second event in Glasgow. The first few shows were not that large but I’d been thrown in the deep end on my first day and asked to escort the guests to the green room from from their drop off point. I was so nervous but it didn’t
As a Scot living in Cardiff I often have friends visit. While they’re here it would be criminal if I didn’t show them around this vibrant city, and I thought I’d share my go-to attractions for Cardiff!
