About me
A proactive, engaging and genuinely creative producer, always focused on the ideas, the detail and the deadlines. My successful diverse portfolio includes 2D/3D animations and motion graphics, CG and VR, commercials, narrative films, social media and GIFs, and branded content for names including Nike, GSK, Google and Amazon. I work on marketing campaigns and across all platforms, driving the creative process, the client relationships, identifying the business opportunities – and the revenue. I combine a process-driven mindset and a people-pleasing personality to successfully negotiate my way through the ever-shifting world of production. And I love all of it. Especially working alongside so many different people – from film crews to boardroom executives. Over the years I’ve developed a natural flair for innovation, trends, project management and leading multiple teams and accounts in parallel. Add to that my deep passion for the world of film, photography and art, VFX and design technology, I’m a hands- on Creative Producer ready for any challenge. I pride myself on organisation and collaboration – contributing at every stage of a project lifecycle, from conceptual ideas, to delivery to analysis, as well as implementing processes, scheduling resources, leading pitches, increasing scope of projects and nurturing client relationships. Finally, I use my technical skills and expert eye to ensure the end results are always impressive and always on time.
