I am a Development Researcher with experience in ideas generation, research, writing treatments and sizzle scripts, casting contributors, gaining access to organisations, and managing work experience candidates.

I am academic as well as creative, with top grades at school and university for essays, dissertations and films. Along with those skills, I have also done paid freelance graphic design work on Photoshop, and editing work using Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premier Pro. I have experience in finding locations and contributors, and looking after high profile talent.

I worked as a production runner in Entertainment and Factual Entertainment for 18 months, in studio and on location, and have a solid understanding of how the industry works. Having graduated from Bournemouth University with First Class Honours in BA (Hons) Television Production, I am passionate about pursuing a career in Television. I have a full clean UK Driving Licence and have been entrusted with driving hire cars and MPVs across the country for shoots.

While working at The Connected Set, I spent two months as a Casting Researcher on their new channel 5 series. I am looking to continue working in Development, and I will take with me some really valuable skills I learnt on this production for casting contributors and experts for new ideas. Read Less
