My Work Printer friendly CV

Freelance producer and PM working across promos, commercials, branded content and shorts with a background in feature films and high-end TV. Having started out in the AD department where I worked for a number of years, I moved into an in house production role at The Ink Factory in 2018 where I worked for 2.5 years across all projects in development, production and post. While here I managed pickup and publicity shoots for projects in production and worked across budgeting and scheduling large scale TV dramas and features.

Following a stint in production finance at Channel 4 for Comedy and Drama, I returned to the freelance world in 2021, working as showrunner's assistant on Atlanta S3, supporting lead director Hiro Murai, producer Alex Orr and story editor Stephen Glover across a multi-country shoot. I then worked as production coordinator on a Florian Zeller's sophomore feature The Son which shot in the UK, France and New York.

Since 2022, I have been working as a freelance producer and PM in promos and commercials.I have worked on shoots of all sizes from tiny budget music promos to multi-day commercials, high end international tv shows and big budget feature films with A list talent. I have significant experience of working with budgets and contracts as well as strong relationships with suppliers and crew. I have PM-ed shoots with budgets of up to £1M including commercials, promos and VFX and pick up shoots for long form. I am experienced in working with stunts, VFX, children and animals as well as coordinating travel and processing visas and licences. I am experienced in managing post production through to delivery. I have a really broad skill set, excellent people skills, a calm demeanour and a great sense of humour.
