About Me

DSC03393 copy.jpg

I've gone from TV ➡ Public Affairs ➡ Charity ➡ Video. 


After graduating with a Film degree from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2012, I moved to London to continue my career in current affairs TV. By working on ITV's Tonight programme I learnt how to book crew, sculpt an engaging narrative and work with editors.⁠

After working on ITV's charity appeal Text Santa I could lead nationwide fundraising campaigns, manage teams of corporate partners and sponsors, plan and execute social media strategies for global accounts (including one in the voice of a reindeer) and raise millions of pounds for nationwide charities imcluding Marie Curie, Barnardos and Save the Children.⁠

Through working for nationwide charities like Mind, Royal British Legion, Media Trust and Guide Dogs I know what challenges charities face, how to safeguard people who may be vulnerable and tell stories with tact, sensitivity and emotion.⁠

And by working for a creative agency as a producer I know how to bring creativity and innovation to project briefs and provide a return for clients from small businesses, to large charities and global organisations.⁠

 

Since moving back to Northern Ireland in 2018, I have been supported by Future Screens NI with the development of The Virus and Me, an animation about the Chinese community in NI during the pandemic and am a Future Creative 2021. I am currently researching the creative industries in Northern Ireland in relation to video production with Karise Hutchinson, Provost of Ulster University Coleraine. I am also Marketing Manager for TEDxStormont and am developing several documentary ideas with local creatives.

Oh and there's the other curves in the road, like starting a Masters in Experimental Psychology, planning to move to Berlin, and then New York, and then thinking that a month travelling around New Zealand would change my life. It didn't.⁠

All of those curves make for a dynamic, multi-faceted, complex human being with stories to tell and loads more to learn.⁠
