I am a creative producer with a broad range of experience across independent and branded film, specialising in non-fiction work that entertains, challenges and shifts perception. I have produced both branded and independent work for some of the the worlds biggest brands, agencies and broadcasters including The UNHCR, Jameson, Chivas Regal, Mastercard, Huawei, Cancer Research, Fred Perry, Skype, Christies, Red Bull TV, The Guardian, New York Times, Havas, Grey, McCann, R/GA, Ogilvy & Publicis.

In 2015 I co-founded the online short documentary scheme, 'Postcards' at Just So in partnership with Sheffield Doc/Fest. Whilst running Postcards I developed and produced 10 short documentaries with both new and established talent including EMMY and BAFTA winners. These films have gone on to find audiences across the globe on platforms including The New York Times, Nowness, Short of the Week, Vimeo Staff Picks, It's Nice That, Dazed, i-D, National Geographic, Esquire, Screen International, Directors Notes & Huck and have also screened at festivals around the world winning awards including Best Documentary at Kinsale Sharks, and Best Documentary at the Endorphin film awards.

In 2016 I was nominated for an Achievement in Production Award at the British Arrows for the work I produced with the UNHCR and the Refugee Olympic Team, a campaign which contributed to over a million new signatures being added to the #WithRefugees global petition, and In 2017 I was named a Future Producer at Sheffield Doc/Fest.
