About me

Since graduating I have worked in various jobs across film and media; including writing and directing my own short films, being a production assistant on music videos for bands such as Muse, and most recently as a creative assistant for a high profile advertising agency. This has provided me with a strong understanding of the demands and processes of different working environments. I have a wealth of experience across moving image, stills, commercial and independent projects. My varying roles are always underpinned by my passion for creativity. I have a strong understanding of aesthetic and am adept at finding creative solutions. I am a naturally curious and inquisitive person who enjoys learning new skills and revels in research. Outside of professional work I am a creative writer, something I have done my entire life. During my time at University I wrote and co-wrote scripts for short films that went on to be made as part of my degree and outside of it, one of which went on to be shown at film festivals and won an award. An academic piece I wrote is published online and I have won a couple of awards for short stories. Currently I write online articles, and am working on a novel and co-writing a sitcom. ●

Work history

Creative Assistant

Cult LDN

Sep 2016 - Mar 2018
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • I was brought to Cult LDN initially as a freelancer for upcoming shoots; to source, make and style props for work with clients such as Sally Hansen, Katy Perry Fragrances and Barbour. After being given a permanent contract as creative assistant, I acted as the in-house art department alongside acquiring other responsibilities within the production team. This included managing the studio; being in charge of equipment, props, and client samples and products. I also supported the production team in every necessary capacity on a daily basis. Tasks ranged from location and talent research to compiling financial and timing spreadsheets. I was the sole producer on several smaller shoots, managing the job from pre-production to completion. Other clients I worked with during my time here include Amazon Fashion, St. Tropez, Revlon, Beyonce Fragrances, and Fashion Targets Breast Cancer.
