Accomplished Casting Executive, Celebrity Producer and Development Producer Skilled in all aspects of celebrity booking and casting of Talent . Excellent contacts. Diplomatic and effective rights negotiator in UK, US and Asia within the worlds of entertainment, music, film and sport. Casting and booking of international A listers with access to notable figures and heavyweights at home and abroad.

I have booked numerous Pride of Britain Awards, Red Nose Night for Comic Relief, cast celebrities for I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! and sourced celebrity audiences for several 'One Night With...' and 'An Audience With' brands. I try to deliver the perfect mix of VIP guests for maximum effect and press exposure be it a red carpet premiere or private party. I am as happy interviewing a high profile celebrity for an in-depth documentary interview as I am securing the best on screen talent at short notice for pilots or network pitches.

I enjoy sourcing new on screen talent for factual entertainment projects and securing high profile names for new entertainment formats from pilot through to returning prime time series working with in-house development teams . Predominantly prime time projects but have also worked on several non-broadcast charity events .

Keen to use transferable skills in a new role. Diplomatic, trustworthy and discreet.

I relocated to Hong Kong in 2010 where I consulted for Hong Kong International Film Festival 2011 and 2012. Worked with FilmAid International on its launch of FilmAid Asia, I then relocated to California in October 2012 where I taught theatre and ran improv workshops Up to speed with global formats, US and Asian trends and on screen talent. Relocated to Yorkshire October 2015 where I worked at True North in Leeds .August 2016 relocated to London where I have continued my Celebrity producing at ITV, Spun Gold and more recently Elephant House Studios.
Available July 2018
