A psychology, media and business graduate, I have varied experience in film, TV and business. These include (most recently) script reading and development for various companies, independent producers and writers, researching for documentary and travel programmes, and assisting a producer at the BBC in a 3 x 60 feature showcasing UK short films, among other production roles when starting out. I’m passionate about film and story-telling. I enjoy working in and learning about all parts of the script to screen process. I’m mainly an ideas person, I enjoy brainstorming and distilling ideas into entertaining, workable formats.

I like to keep myself fresh and attend as many industry talks and workshops as I can. I’ve just finished training in script development at NFTS. and aside from screenings, Q & As and assisting at Pitch Fest at London SWF, recent courses include Pitching and Developing Documentaries with Livia Russell, also at NFTS, and Robert McKey's STORY seminar in Kerry, November 2015.

A psychology, media and business graduate with varied experience in film, media and business. With the ultimate goals of writing, directing and producing; my specific goal at the moment is to build my development and producing skills, ideally through working closely to assist producers and/or through script reading/editing experience.

I have extensive experience in research and in writing and editing as well as practical experience on set. I have experience selecting finished films gained while working at the BBC, where I was solely responsible for selecting short films for broadcast, as well as analysing and summarising each one in production reports and presenter scripts. I also sat on pitching panels at Cascade Pictures (Soho) and at London Screenwriters Festival (2015). Read Less
