Development / Production Exec

I am a film and TV creative practitioner with extensive industry experience in London, Sydney and Dubai.

I have worked in fast paced, intense environments and am a reliable, enthusiastic individual with a can-do attitude.

In my development work, I utilise my strong eye and sense for story, emotional engagement and well-articulated taste as well as my wide-ranging viewing and voracious reading habits.

Through my varied work across different aspects of the industry, I have a sound understanding of the domestic industry and international market.

I'm super flexible and keen to work in any and all areas of development and / or production at any level.
