About me

Agile and visually driven producer who is both tenacious and resourceful. Having spent 6 years working in buying for big fashion brands, and keen to make thought provoking work, I transitioned into the world of commercial film making. As the role of producer has evolved, so has my skill set. I am comfortable working on multi platform campaigns from concept to delivery working directly with clients, senior creatives, suppliers, crew and high level talent. Film, TVC, short form docs, Print, Branded activations and 360 intergrated campaigns are worlds that I can traverse with ease. Global work includes: Argentina, Oman, Russia, Turkey, Iceland, Romania, Lithuania, Wales, Czech Republic, Spain.
