About me
Throughout my career I have enjoyed focussing on the business side of the entertainment industry. Playing an active role in procuring and nurturing new business while maximising profit is something I find very rewarding. I also enjoy the creative aspects of this industry and am fortunate to have had the opportunity to develop treatments, write scripts, and inspire and encourage teams to take greater creative risks. Strong and clear narratives with high production values captivate audiences, and understanding how to do this effectively within an assigned budget is a challenge I like to rise to. I believe I am particularly adept at using my production, business and IT skills to capitalise on the maximum commercial potential for any given project whilst ensuring the company’s long term aims and objectives are achieved.

    Facebook: Beyond the ScreenAt TCO London I was the executive producer on ‘Beyond the Screen’ Facebook’s first ever cinema feature film.

  • Pandora - Life Moments
    Pandora - Life MomentsWe asked four women to come and tell us about a remarkable moment from their lives – their wedding day, university graduation, a milestone birthday – and who they shared it with. As a unique thank you, we then brought their loved ones along for a surprise celebration of their enduring relationships. Originally these were meant to be online films only, but the series of films received such a positive response that we turned them into a TVC. I was the Executive Producer across this project.

    Executive ProducerVarious Companies (Freelance)
    London, United KingdomFreelance
    From November 2018 I went back to freelancing, and I have been working for a range of different companies. For most of 2019 I have been working with the Edge Picture Company. I was leading the HSBC Global Mandatory Training (GMT) for the Edge. I was particularly interested in this job as it had well over 100 stakeholders feeding into different aspects of the training; which helped me strengthen my client management skills. A feature documentary I worked on, with Dover Street Entertainment, got premiered at Venice Film Festival 2019, so that was a particular highlight for me this year. I’m also in the middle of delivering several projects, but the most interesting one in my opinion, is the female-led sci-fi feature film called Beyond Existence.

     - London, United KingdomFull Time
    TCO London is the home of subculture magazine Huck and film magazine Little White Lies. Over the last few years they were approached by brands and agencies to help create bespoke solutions to client problems and the agency was formed. At TCO London I oversaw all productions which include, but are not limited to; short and long format films, print (magazine and books), events, and distribution. Typically, there are 25 – 30 different projects on the go at any one time. I supervised all of them and ensured everything was running smoothly and on time. I was also responsible for all financial aspects of production from budget planning to final sign off. I have helped develop a system, from a financial and production perspective that enables TCO to scale up rapidly should more work be commissioned. I was also responsible for high-end client relations and securing new and/or additional work. Some of the projects I have worked on at TCO London include: LDNR / Nothing Beats a Londoner - Nike Adidas Archive - Adidas Life Moments - Pandora MLB 108 Zine – Major League Baseball Base Jump – Budweiser Parallel Stance – Vans Ideas Report – WeTransfer Spaces In Between – Size?
