About me

I’m a film and television fanatic, with degrees in English Literature and Theatre Set Design. I have a strong administrative background and excellent communication skills. I have over a years’ experience in the film/television world. I have performed a myriad of roles: script editing to running jobs to working in talent management, casting and production. I’m enthusiastic, organised and hardworking. Storytelling (in all its forms) is my predominant skill, evinced by my roles in Film/Documentaries and bolstered by my English degree and NCTJ. I have a nose for comedic, peculiar and idiosyncratic narratives; whether it be finding characters for Fact Ent TV shows or writing/editing scripts.
