Television Producer (specialising in Development & Tasks


Jan 2004 - Jan 2007
  • I began my television career as part of the BBC team (Format Entertainment Development) that developed the smash hit Strictly Come Dancing format. I'm one of the few who claims no credit for the idea, I actually thought it would be a flop! I like to think that I've learnt quite a lot about television since then. I rose to the level of producer working in various production and development teams before moving in to format distribution.
