Watch my reel

I was once advised to"Strive for perfection, and settle for excellence". I do. 2018 will be no different.

It's hard to believe (mainly due to my youthful outlook on life!), but I have over 20 years experience working in the UK media industry, specialising in broadcast television, events management, online formats and creative corporate film communications. I had a fantastic start in production and my first 14 years were spent at the BBC in both the UK, USA, France and Canada. I've been fortunate to produce, direct and create award winning TV programmes & strands and 2016 saw the prestigious win of a BETT award after the success of reachoutcpd.com - a free and interactive, science based online continuing professional development resource for UK primary teachers. A true labour of love.

It's rewarding to make popular, memorable and ground-breaking content & events, but even more fulfilling when you get to lead and mentor creative teams to produce their very best work and deliver great results (even with the odd challenge!).

It's my transferable production skills (planning, budgeting, organising and team leadership) that have also helped me to make my mark in other sectors too, in particular, higher education.

Bringing my own distinctive and creative flair of course to comms - has given me opportunity to produce congratulatory, sometimes stark and focus changing messages via, digital, print and live channels to a global workforce across all continents. Comms should NEVER be boring. I'm well known for my events management, ranging from co-ordination of a West End film premier, to multiple day senior executive conferences, to university open days and more intimate & private functions - I've done it all and love it when a plan comes together.

BBC, Barts and The London School of Medicine & Dentistry, Twig World Ltd, Imperial College London, LOCOG/London 2012, Sony Music & Television Pictures, GlaxoSmithKline, OH TV Sky 199, 4Front Media Ltd and HR Direct are just some of the great brands and companies that I've been fortunate to work for or collaborate with.

When I'm not at work, you'll probably find me in court...I mean, on a court - a netball or tennis one depending on the time of year!
