Moyra has been self employed since 1991 when a stint at being a receptionist convinced her that there must be a less boring way to make a living.
Her first business was in interior decoration, which she set up with a friend, and which went on to transform London pubs into bars and manage the design and redecoration of shops across the country. This was all going swimmingly until their main client’s building firm undercut them forcing the realisation that the golden eggs were all in one basket and perhaps they had better diversify.
Moyra left interiors and went on to pursue a career in Film & TV production. She started as a Production Coordinator, working mainly on historical drama documentaries, but also in children’s drama and as an assistant on a feature film starring Richard Harris. That was interesting! TV production is full on and Moyra had a love hate relationship with it. Every few years it seemed to be taking over her life so she would veer off and spend time doing something else for a living. Moyra has therefore also worked full time at an Arts Administration company, as a customer liaison officer for a building firm and as Yoga and Pilates manager at Triyoga, Europe’s largest yoga centre. Despite these interesting diversions, She kept returning to the TV world, working latterly as an Archive Researcher, finding and licensing images for use in documentary programmes. Her career in TV ended (as such) when she moved to Brighton and had a baby. She realised that working long and unpredictable hours in London was no longer an option she wanted to pursue so she stopped, and became a full time mother (apart from a few days working on an oscar nominated documentary by James Marsh).
Being a mum did not stop Moyra being a Person Who Does as during this time she started a business doing children’s portraits, ran a successful playgroup and began a 2 year course in Yoga Teacher training.
Moyra met Curtis at Likemind, at a point when People Who Do were needing to expand and her son had just started nursery and she was looking to start work again. Moyra is a creative thinker, who relishes structure in her working life as a means to Get Stuff Done.
