  • Location: Leeds, West Yorkshire
  • Career stage: Entry
  • Freelancer: Available

Originally from the south coast, I moved to Yorkshire in 2010 to study at the Northern Film School.

I am a hardworking and dependable runner enriched with some technical camera knowledge. I am looking to gain experience in TV production. I am attentive, proactive and confident in all manner of runner’s usual tasks, such as administrative tasks, as well as approaching the general public and I can make a great cup of tea or coffee. 

In the long-term, I aspire to become an Assistant Director and also start directing beautiful, meaningful and challenging films/TV. In the meantime, I'm ready to learn all I can in the industry and help out whichever I can.

I'm incredibly enthusiastic and bring a real positive energy to teams I am a part of; never afraid to get stuck in and help out. I've got a great sense of humour and love to make people laugh coupled with a wise head on young shoulders.
