Production Safety Passport

I am an experienced radio documentary producer that is now looking for a new challenge in the world of visual programming. I want to be part of a team that's creating thought-provoking, captivating and entertaining programming.

I've been fortunate enough to have been able to create the programming that I love via radio working with some excellent independent broadcast companies (including Bite Yer Legs, Folder Media, and USP Content) while working in collaboration with the BBC, CNN and UK charity Comic Relief.

This time working in radio has provided me with a detailed insight into the high standards required and expected in the industry. I am passionate about storytelling, and I believe my creativity and originality can contribute to any work environment.

I love TV; I love radio; I love to be creative. Let's create something together.
