Over 10 years experience in Production and Editorial.

Friendly, creative, organised and calm - experience as Researcher, Casting Assistant Producer, Stage Manager, Production Co-ordinator.

Excellent communication and decision making, strong editorial judgement and full clean driving licence.

Delighted and proud to have had contracts extended and been asked back to all jobs in the last 3 years.

I can also provide moments of calm or daftness as I am also a qualified yoga teacher and hula hoop teacher.
