About me

I'm a Senior Producer with a background in documentary storytelling for social cause and branded content. Beginning at Vice and later LADbible, I have developed an authentic approach to branded content and worked with clients such as Unilever, Nikon, Home Office, Visit Britain and Young Minds to create stories that cut through a cluttered online landscape. My most recent series The Gap, for LADbible, is a window into different lives and different generations. Two people, of vastly varying ages, discuss a shared experience that impacted their lives, how it affected them and how they dealt with it to ultimately emerge stronger.
