About me

I have been a senior production assistant at Saatchi & Saatchi for just over a year now and am now ready to make the next step in my career. I arrived at S&S with plenty of confidence from my previous role at CHI & Partners which has only grown since. I am now a competent junior producer running smaller projects autonomously & assisting on some of the agencies biggest productions as well. Most recently I’ve been selected to work on the last 3 business pitches because of my work ethic and creative producing. With my help we recently won a large brand as a new client. I have worked with Hollywood actor Harvey Keitel & have experience shooting abroad. I am interested in using the skills I've learnt and applying them to a more varied plethora of work (mixed media, art, culture, events, theatre, outreach).
