About me

Hello! I am a Casting Director in London & Wales with 10 years experience from all corners of the casting industry. I also work with amazing international casting platform & actor magazine, Backstage, managing their UK arm. Starting out in background casting in film and TV such as The Legend of Tarzan, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, War Machine & Beast, I cut my teeth sourcing and booking 1000s of SAs each week and working quickly to get the most out of people and a brief. I continued my work in casting for documentary and reality, working on productions with Zig Zag, Ryan Seacrest Productions and Mentorn Media before returning to film, TV and Commercials alongside some great Casting Directors in the UK. In 2016, I started my own casting company and am now working on film and commercial projects from London and Wales bases. Recent credits include BBC and BFI film projects that have been picking up notoriety and selections from BAFTA qualifying festivals including BFI LFF, Aesthetica, SXSW, Encounters, London Short FF, Leeds International FF and many more. Recent commercial projects include work with production companies and creative agencies Film & Video Umbrella, Iris Worldwide, Radley Yeldar, Agile Films and Wonderhatch. My work with Backstage sees me forging great relationships and partners in many UK film festivals, film schools and organisations such as the BFI, BECTU, ScreenSkills, WFTV & lots more. All whilst working to get the word out amongst actors and content creators that Backstage is an incredible resource in casting.
