I am an Award-winning freelance television producer who has produced many high-profile shows with big-name talent. Most recently, I have been show-running multiple 3 hour specials for Channel 5 (When… Goes Horribly Wrong) often overseeing up to 7 edits and managing a team of up to 25 people.
Some shows I’ve had commissioned include: Greatest Celebrity Wind Ups Ever! with Joe Pasquale which consistently rated 25% above slot average for Channel 5 and World Cup Epic Fails hosted by Angus Deayton for ITV in 2014 which rated with 3.7 million viewers and resulted in a subsequent commission, Christmas Epic Fails.
I am hard working and love my job. I pride myself on always coming in on budget. I also self-shoot and edit. Read Less
