Runner

  • Location: Manchester
  • Career stage: Entry
  • Freelancer: Available

Entry level creative. Passionate about engaging audiences through storytelling. Worked as a reliable runner in studio on location and in production office. Looking for more opportunities in TV & digital.

I recently founded the Manchester Creative Network, with the aim of connecting people who work in the media. Working as a call-handler and my three years’ experience in customer service, has meant I am used to communicating with different types of people and am able to remain calm and level-headed (in an often fast-paced and high-pressured environment).

Capable self-shooter and proficient with Adobe software for editing. Avid certified. 

I'm keen to give minority groups and young people a voice through television and digital. I like to work in creative environments and take on new and demanding experiences that test my abilities.
