Chad Killoran


"Since completing 6th form at Emrys ap Iwan I firstly had a little period of not knowing what I wanted to do as a career during which I continued in my retail job which I'd had in 6th form. I eventually found wigs, hair and makeup as a possibility and started trying to learn through Youtube tutorials and self practice which lead to me finding my own work experience on various shows and films through online research and sending out emails and letters."

"I left Emrys in 2017 with A levels in Music, History and English Literature. In the summer soon after I attended the composition residency with the National Youth Orchestra of Wales (NYOW), where I composed music for a small chamber ensemble, working closely with Mark Bowden and members of the orchestra to contribute to a programme with the theme of 'The Sea'."
