Kari Thompson

I am a Hair and Makeup Junior who graduated April 2018. Since leaving Iver I have been lucky enough to work on a multiple different productions where I have loved building my skills, being creative and meeting lots of new friends and colleagues along the way. I first started out in the industry doing Craft services for a few years where I got to know the industry from all aspects including what each different department did to the set etiquettes. Although I loved being part of the craft team it soon became even more apparent to me that Hair and Makeup was the department I wanted to be in. I am very sociable, hard working, always smiling and very much a team player.
