About me

I am an award winning Producer with a proven record of putting together projects and overseeing production from conception to final delivery. Experienced in documentaries, features and branded content. I relish bringing ideas to life in a creative, professional and cost effective way. My passion in life is identifying compelling stories and gaining access to contributors, often in delicate situations. I’m an exceptionally organised, passionate and motivated individual who can happily juggle the complex process of producing unforgettable and impactful content whilst keeping projects on budget and schedule, managing small and large teams, dealing with the day-to-day communication with internal stakeholders, commissioners and clients, whilst working under pressure and making informed decisions in a fast-paced environment. I have developed and produced work that have been shown to millions worldwide by leading broadcasters, film festivals and brands such as Channel 4, CBC and BBC Worldwide, Tribeca Film Festival, SXSW and Airbnb. Which has garnered me industry recognition including; being named a Broadcast Hot Shot, BAFTA Breakthrough Brits 2013 (shortlist) and a national Royal Television Society Award.
