Biography

Freelance television producer, based in north west of England. Recents credits include A Word, Our Zoo, Luther, Doctor Who, Taggart and Whitechapel. Have worked for all major broadcasters. Entered the TV industry after completing a drama, film, TV and English Lit degree – BA (Hons) at University College of Ripon & York, st John. No family connection to the media, so this career path came as a little shock to my parents. Began my career as a runner twenty five years ago and worked my way up through different production grades (assistant director, location manager) until arriving at my present job.
