I am always laughing and occasionally funny. I am passionate about working in digital media. I'm driven and always put in 100%.
I worked in a team of two, writing and editing short comedy videos daily. I responded to trends on social media, such as Twitter as well as in the press. The content was then published on sites such as YouTube and AOL. On AOL we achieved approximately 4 million hits since September 2014.

I co-wrote and submitted a written bid and budget to Creative Skillset, which would enable It’s My Shout Productions to offer extended training/mentoring to 58 individu- als in Wales. The bid was successful in securing upwards of £200,000. I worked as a co-ordinator in appointing trainees, organising master classes specific to department and working in partnership with BBC Cymru Wales and S4C to organise the pre-pro- duction of ten short films.
As a production assistant, my role included but was not limited to: organising transport and accommodation; assisting the coordinator with shooting and edit schedules; attending and contributing to advisory panel meetings made up of executives within the Welsh media industry. Organising workshops for trainees.
I was offered the opportunity to direct and produce a documentary for BBC Wales, focusing on the experience of young people working on a film set for the first time. I worked with young people from the Welsh valleys and developed a script. I shot part of the documentary myself on a Sony Z1 and then worked closely with a camera team and offline editor before working with an in-house edit team at the BBC. I was supported by Commissioning Executive Elis Owen throughout the project.
My role included: organising travel and accommodation, sorting POs and expense claims, working with both talent and executives, working in studio and coordinating contributors.
I was named as 'one to watch' by Funny Women (http://funnywomen.com) for my work as a stand up comedian. http://funnywomen.com
