Matthew Hartshorn

Looking for any part-time positions you might know's available: I was born in England, bred in the Turks and Caicos Islands, spent the past year in Mauritius hosting, producing and writing for what became the most listened to show on Rock Mauritius, and now I'm in Liverpool studying audio production with an emphasis on Sound Design/Foley/Illusions; to make a long story short.
It's taken a few weeks to get settled in, but now I'm there or thereabouts, it's high time that I immerse myself in my chosen, soon to be profession, and live theatre looks just the right place to start.
