About me


I’m an exceedingly passionate, proactive, and detail-orientated administrator with prior secretarial experience in creative fields. I’m currently freelancing as a writer/producer, and have most recently served as London Film Academy’s Front of House Coordinator. The post entailed handling in-person, phone, and all email enquiries, conducting tours, taking meeting minutes, managing petty cash, taking care of the reception area and carrying out personal errands for both of the school’s principles. I also branched outside of my role, and took over social media, co-managed bursary students, and implemented a job listings program that saw more students thrust into the UK film industry than ever before.
