I'm lucky in that I feel like I've had three (working) lives to date - and each one has been better than the last!
First up: office admin job. Definitely NOT for a creative like me!!
Second one: supporting artiste, with some acting experience, mostly for feature films and TV - loved it!
But that gave way to my third life - visual effects. That combined my love of film with my creative abilities - and I have never been happier, and never looked back!!
