About Me

​I built my career from the ground up with no guidance, connections, or formal schooling after completing an extensive amount of research on the industry, networking and learning how to break into it. I have now been working within the industry for over six years on a variety of feature films and episodic series including Snow White, Slow Horses and The Buccaneers for Disney, Apple TV+ and HBO.​


I now enjoy using this knowledge to develop training materials for Assistant Editors and Editorial Trainees such as the Assistant Editor's Toolkit and have guest lectured at Cambridge and Solent University. I am honoured to represent members and advocate for creating a healthier, fairer and more accessible industry in my role as Secretary of The Rough Assembly. ​
