About me

Forward thinking creative and highly experienced videographer and photographer. KPI driven, enthusiastic and determined, with a strong desire to succeed at everything I do. I feel that my ambitious and dedicated demeanour allows me to see positivity in every situation and I always strive to succeed. I am an extremely passionate and adaptable individual that relishes in new opportunities. My greatest achievement to date is single handedly setting up the entire video department within my current role, underpinning my ability to think quick on my feet and make things happen at pace. I have since been leading the videography and photography team at ActionCOACH UK for the last 3 years, recently branching out and securing a further title of social marketing and SEO executive. In my spare time I am an active person, frequently taking part in half marathons and tough mudders. Photography has always been my biggest passion further, I am a keen traveller, coinciding the two is one of my favourite pastimes.

    • I have enjoyed 3 years ActionCOACH UK, the organisation is the worlds number 1 business coaching company. As the company has grown it has enabled me to develop strengths and skills at a rapid pace. Initially beginning the video and photography department on my own, I have gone on to become head of the department, assisting in the growth of business’ all over the country. Developing communication assets and visual marketing for over 300 UK brands. Aligned with our set KPIS w e would travel nationwide, capturing the business owners success stories, enabling franchise owners old and new to gain more leads and grow the brand as a whole. As well as client testimonials I produce all content for the companies events such as the Business Excellence Forum where I would work along side the guest speakers such as Sir Clive Woodward and Baroness Karren Brady, in which I would do all of the pre and post production for the events. I am highly trained within Premier Pro, something I began to teach myself over 5 years ago, this self starting attitude is something I take with me on every venture I partake in. Hoping to widen my knowledge within digital marketing, I began to assist the digital marketing team with social media content curation and SEO. This has ultimately enabled me to continuously visualise the final content output when creating the original piece of work, driving the demographics and impressions the assets reach.
