I have worked in TV production for many years now and have been working as a production coordinator and researcher for much of this time. Outside of television, I have worked as a researcher for exhibitions, gallery installations, and conferences. I have always been fascinated by researching stories and creating new content through work.
During my years in television, I have been lucky enough to work on a variety of programs. These have included light entertainment ('Animal Obsessions' for Animal Planet), history ('Sacred Sites' for the Smithsonian Channel) and factual documentary ('James Joyce: A Shout in the Streets' for BBC One).
I began my career in TV as a runner, moving on to a production assistant and have now worked as a production coordinator on a number of projects. I am a highly organised person, who is enjoys multitasking, thrives under pressure and enjoys being a part of a team. In 2017, I participated in the BBC Academy's Production Coordinator training program in Glasgow. This was not only an enjoyable experience but provided me with some insight into the BBC work atmosphere. I believe the experience I gained there will prove an enormous help to my future career, given the notoriety and universal respect of this broadcaster.
I really enjoy working with others but also love using my own initiative and being a problem solver. I think my combined experiences in the fields of production and research showcase the perfect mix for working in TV production. I strive to create interesting content with fresh ideas and concepts but also have a great understanding of the correct methods of going about producing a great show. I am currently based in Dublin but am more than happy to relocate if required. Read Less
