A passionate storyteller and self-motivated television producer, experienced in development and production of scripted and non-scripted, animation and live action TV shows, content creation and course creation. I started my career at ITN Source as an Archive Researcher for programme and news clips and later was based at Channel 4 where I was dedicated to the Channel 4 library. I moved into the Kid's TV sector in 2007 when I joined Pan European broadcaster Jetix (formerly known as Fox Kid's Channel) within the Acquisitions department. In 2009 I joined Disney Channel as Animation Development Manager where I developed properties such as Boyster with French Studio, Je Suis Bien Content and Counterfeit Cat with UK based Aardman.

During my time at the broadcaster, I worked across a range of genres within Kid's TV including Drama, Entertainment, Cookery and Comedy. The shows were transmitted across Europe Middle East and Africa in 21 language versions.

AgilePM® PractitionerIT ONLINE LEARNING
- London, United Kingdom
Agile is a project management method whereby the project is undertaken incrementally, making it easier to determine what the changes and risks will be and thus making it easier to deal with them if and when they do arise. Each aspect of the project is revised at certain, predetermined times. This will ensure that, if a problem or obstacle arises, the situation can be rectified and, if necessary, the project can be steered in a different direction.
