About me

I'm a very energetic and ambitious Developing Creative at BBC Creative. I worked on innovative 360 campaigns - like bringing RuPaul’s walking legs to Manchester Pride 2019; as well as bigger and smaller clip based campaigns, channel takeovers and exciting social media content across different genres and BBC channels. My obsession with music shines through my experience at working for radio campaigns like BBC Radio 6 Music Festival, interviewing legendary Karen O from Yeah Yeah Yeahs or even singing karaoke with Prince Harry. I’m determined to excel, a team player with very strong communication skills and an infectious energy. I’m never afraid of any new challenges, and was able to change my career from writing theatre reviews, through radio production, tv production and now being a successful promo director.

  • Full Time
  • As one of the very first challenges from taking this role was working as a part of a creative duo on RuPaul Drag Race UK. That made me responsible for one of the most important campaigns of our department - currently nominated for British Arrows Awards. I was deciding on the shape of the campaign, making core decisions and changes. In order to carry it out I had to know the brand we promoted and represented inside out, being adaptable, agile, quick learner and very persistent. Apart from 360 campaigns I’m also working on bigger and smaller clip based campaigns, channel takeovers and exciting social media content across different genres and BBC channels. To mention Fleabag, Call The Midwife, Radio 6 Music Festival, Celebrity MasterChef, Life and Death Row etc. Every single project is a new challenge and it is a constant learning curve bringing satisfaction from successful campaigns and content viewers. There’s always a chance for an innovative approach and I have a chance to work with a fantastic team united with a common goal
