About me

Producer and Project Manager with experience working across storytelling in digital content, narrative filmmaking, and branded films across London and Europe. The daily impact of content in our lives is forever evolving, leading to my passion for ensuring that quality and entertainment are at the forefront of digital information audience experience. I find enjoyment in generating ideas to transform a brief into an audio-visual piece that educates, entertains and inspires. My role and responsibilities included: being client-facing, managing timelines, talent, creating strategy and managing budgets. I direct and write screenplays, lead pitches, develop processes and create decks to effectively communicate ideas to larger teams and departments. I spend my free time honing my personal professional development through online courses, reading and giving back through public speaking to inner-city youth. I see each project as a chance to create something that pushes boundaries and builds connections with audiences on a personal level through emotions.
