About me

Communicates with tact and candour. Refreshingly honest. Laughs inappropriately loud. An Executive Producer with a love of social content and a passion for managing teams and mentoring. Core skills sitting in video and photography. An understanding and appreciation of strategy and new technologies. Creatively focused to hone ideas from brief through to delivery. Fiscally responsible and process driven, and well-versed in running new business pitches, retainers and campaigns with budgets of £2m+.
