I am a Senior Creative and Director working for BBC Creative. This year I have directed campaigns for The Royal Wedding, Children in Need, CBeebies and BBC News. As well as directing, I also write and develop ideas often working with my colleague Ellie Putt. Our most notable project has been the re-brand of the BBC One ‘Oneness’ idents. Directed by the acclaimed photographer Martin Parr, the project is a “portrait of modern Britain” showing there is more that unites us, than divides us. As a Senior, I help manage a team of Promo-Producers, overseeing their work and helping develop their careers. I have won several awards including two Gold Promax’s for Best Newcomer in 2014 and Best Direct Response Promo for BBC Bitesize in 2016.
