    About me

    As a 1st assistant director, I am calm yet persistent. I have been involved in a mixture of short films, feature films, music videos and live events, with a number of those productions including green screen, stunts, fire, heavy snow and children / young teens (small and large groups of max 250). When it comes to scheduling, I use Studio Binder and/or Excel Spreadsheets. These productions have given me the opportunity to work across the UK and overseas in France, America and Australia.

    Thanks to growing up in a family who also work in the creative industry, I was lucky enough to experience and gain an understanding of all stages of production from an early age.

    When I started working as an AD, with determination and passion for building my career, I quickly found myself working from a 3rd to a 1st.
