Personal statement

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, I moved to Birmingham at the tender and debatable “late” age of 23 to study at university to further my creative strengths. I have a passion for organising and nurturing new ideas into the next big thing!

My primary areas of expertise are producing and assistant directing! I am deeply passionate about and have experiences in directing and editing. I am versed in camera and sound operation.

Organisation and Creativity are my two great loves in work, I thrive in stressful environments and work to make them as stress-less and enjoyable as possible, I love working on a bit of everything, but my dream would be to work within the television industry creating and filming fresh new content for viewers. my greatest hobby is making people laugh, I enjoy coming onto the set and keeping cast and crew entertained, but when it comes to getting my head down and cranking out the work I’ll do all that and more! I love what I do and I want to have the best time on set.

Projects I've recently created and worked on include:

1. 'Mess' - Taster Comedy Pilot
2. 'Not News' - Satirical Sketch Show
3. 'The Appetite' - Scottish Fantasy/Horror Film
4. 'Frank McKay: The Series' - Comedy Web Series
5. 'When You Leave Me' - Thriller/Horror
6. 'An Interview with the Devil' - Comedy Interview
