About me

After I graduated in Journalism, Media and Cultural studies from Cardiff University in 2012 with a 2:1 degree, I gained a place on the BBC’s Production Talent Pool and consequently a job as a floor runner on Doctor Who. From there gained experience in the television industry as a floor runner on productions including Broadchurch, Sherlock, Stella, Frankie, Wizards vs Aliens and Da Vinci’s Demons. I worked on many film and television productions, as a runner and then a make-up artist after completing my training at Christine Blundell Make-up Academy, before making a move into administrative and marketing work at first at LONDON Advertising and then Shortlist Media. I am currently studying for my MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London.
