A personable, outgoing, and passionate, London-based AP.

After starting out as a Doc Lab 2018 trainee (the Grierson Trust’s emerging talent scheme), I have developed a strong researcher skill set, working across production, development, and casting, both autonomously or as part of a team.

With a strong interest in current affairs and social issues, I get real enjoyment from helping to make television and digital content which works to showcase compelling aspects of the world we live in. I have a good nose for a story and I am able to format the approach creatively to make dynamic, powerful, and engaging television, with many of my ideas being pitched to major broadcasters including BBC1/2/3, Channel 4, and Channel 5.

I pride myself on my ability to quickly build strong relationships with contributors, allowing productions access to communities and people such as marijuana farmers to crossdressers, political activists to K Pop superfans.

I am extremely versatile, with strong development skills. I am confident in assisting PDs/APs on shoot, negotiating access and discovering contributors and talent.
