About me

 

I'm an experienced Director/Creative Producer; working across multi genres and platforms - including documentary, music, fashion/arts content for TV, Radio and online. Armed with a naturally inquisitive nature and hunger to tell stories creatively, I’ve been working in media and communications for many years and devised experimental music formats; worked on live studio music-based shows and after heading up the online TV department at Fashion magazines ELLE, I now oscillate between Production/storytelling; self-shooting and editing content for various brands and producing documentaries for TV & Radio. I understand the production process fully and how to work it in the digital age.
