About me
I’m all about storytelling. I’ve had a passion for film that started in my childhood, and that I’ve carried through my working career, and it’s this need to relay narratives and craft stories that’s the driving force behind why I do what I do.

    Senior ProducerWiser
    London, United KingdomFull Time
    My journey at Wiser has spanned all the way from Associate Producer to Senior, and has crossed a variety of responsibilities. I’ve been leading conceptual copywriting in the films team and have directed and produced large-scale productions, shot videos solo and as part of a team and edited work in both the employer brand and consumer brand field. Wiser’s ownership of the employer brand space has led me to gaining a thorough understanding of recruitment marketing and crafting films for commercial purpose. I’ve also been responsible for treatments and client comms, and been involved with pitching new work. It’s a role that’s encompassed, in depth, every stage of the production process.
