    About me

    I'm currently studying Film, Photography and Media at the University of Leeds after obsessing over all things film and TV for years. My passion started with a desire to act leading me to drama school, yet as I entered my teenage years this developed into a determination to get behind the camera. Since that decision I've lived and breathed this industry, gaining a wide variety of experience as a Production Runner on BBC1 shows, all whilst exploring a media-related degree. I've had the opportunity to visit World Productions whilst they developed their production 'The Bodyguard' for BBC 1, assist a degree portfolio show at Pinewood Film Studios, as well as take part in Leeds International Film Festival as a Venue Assistant. I've also directed and produced my own short film 'Frankie' which won the Filmed-Up Festival at HOME cinema in Manchester. I continue to make short films today. I'm currently looking to expand my knowledge by gaining more experience through work in the film and TV industry, after all it's what I love to do!

    Additional Information

    I am also presently employed at the Emmerdale Studio Experience as a way of immersing myself further into the world of TV. Although not strictly TV related, this job has given me transferable skills that are incredibly useful as a Production Runner, such as using initiative, communicating clearly with the public and remaining polite and friendly.
