    About me

    'Ordinary people can be extra-ordinary'

    I have always been fascinated by this thought and the idea of helping broadcast and capture individual stories to share to future generations. I also cant deny there's something exciting about doing something a little bit different with my life. Ive never taken the 'regular' path pursuing my media ambitions from a young age even when my tutors told me to take a 'real' subject at university. I now hold a BA Hons in Media Film Production and have worked for some amazing companies in amazing places. I currently work as a Digital Marketing Executive creating film based and image based content. My further skills lie camera operation, assisting with production paperwork, professional branding, production photography and editing. You name it I've probably filmed it and photographed it, if I haven't I learn quick and will enjoy the challenge of something new!


    "Katie, is hard working and dedicated to the task at hand. She has great organisational skills and is a valued crew member. She is versatile and easy to work with."

    — Dan Delglyn,

    "During the run upto the challenge me event, Katie was an incredible asset to me, integral to the success of the event. Did a LOT of paperwork, sourced some of things we needed, and helped keep everything organised. On the day she was a crucial cog in the 28 person team, dealing with a wide variety of technical and organisational issues, managing those below her, and getting whatever job needed doing done. An A+ crew member. I look forward to working with her in the near future"

    — Ben Chapman, Managing Director, Eternal Iris Film and Photography Ltd., worked directly with Katie at Eternal Iris Film and Photography Ltd.

    "Katie's role as production manager for the Challenge Me Youth Conference was an essential part of the success of the event, her knowledge of the technical aspects of equipment, organisational skills, commitment to getting the job done, and her eye for detail made her an incredibly valuable member of the team. Very much looking forward to working with her again."

    — Michael J. Beech, Owner/Director, Eternal Iris Film and Photography Ltd., managed Katie indirectly at Eternal Iris Film and Photography Ltd.

    "Katie made a brilliant first ad on shoot, keeping everything rolling smoothly throughout a manic day of shooting, keeping shot lists up to date, everyone happy, and still assisting with camera/lights when had time. Was an asset to the team, I look forward to working with her more in the future"

    — Ben Chapman, Managing Director, Eternal Iris Film and Photography Ltd., worked directly with Katie at Staffordshire University

    "Katie helped us out as a Behind-the-scenes videographer on our Back To The Future themed music video. She was good technically, unobtrusive and personable. I would have no hesitation in asking her to assist on other Film Division projects."

    — Brendan O'Neill, was Katie's client
