About me

I thrive in high-pressure environments where I can apply my methodical, versatile nature to meet the demands of the day. I cut my teeth working for big fashion brands (ASOS/TOPSHOP), and working backstage at London Fashion Week, before transferring my tenacious negotiating skills and experience dealing with buying budgets, over to the world of commercial filmmaking. Driven by my passion for storytelling and led by a keen visual eye, I’ve been able to work with some of the world’s top directing talent, cinematographers and photographers, creating TVC's, Music Videos, short films and stills campaigns. COUNTRIES WORKED: Argentina, Oman, Russia, Turkey, Iceland, Romania, Lithuania, Wales, Czech Republic, Spain.
