m currently working in documentary film at researcher level, (credit TBC Junior AP/sr. Researcher) with interests in observational documentaries surrounding hard and soft social and political topics. I’m currently working on a landmark long form, four-part observational documentary scheduled for a prime time slot for Channel 4. I’m passionate about having a role in spreading engaging, informative content.

Other credits include:
Secret Life of Four Year Olds (C4)– Casting Researcher
Brexit Wife Swap (one off, C4) – Researcher
Crossover (VICE) – Logger
BBC at the Edinburgh Festivals – Runner

This year I was nominated as a delegate and representative from my place of work at the BAFTA guru labs - for new talent one year into the industry. I was also one of 12 selected for the 2016 Indie Diversity Scheme.

I have a wealth of experience on location (and have a full, clean driving license), in studio, casting, cutting and can boom. I can shoot on the Canon C300, have basic knowledge of the Sony FS7 and am building on this knowledge in my current role.

Though primarily interested in docs, I love film and comedy and would be very open minded about working in these areas too in the future.
