KEY QUALITIES



Programme interests
I am interested in programmes that provide mental stimulation while being entertaining for the audience at the same time, such as Sherlock or Suits. I don't like to switch my brain off, so I am always enjoying myself the most when I watch something that gives the audience something to solve, along with the protagonists of the programme! Period Dramas are also great for this, as they incite interest and a desire to learn more, such as Hornblower or Mr.Selfridge.

I am also hugely passionate about comedy, particularly comedies that push boundaries and are a little eccentric (like me!) such as the Vicar of Dibley, Black Books, and Friends.

State your attraction to the TV industry
I thrive on the energy of a fast-paced environment and was inspired at University by our intensive Television Studio practices. We were trained to 'go live' in the studio, where I learned the value of timing in a studio environment. I am motivated by contributing towards something that commanded such value and the need to be on the pulse. No two shoots were the same, but all provided such mental stimulation and there was never a dull moment.

How do you relax?
I am an avid reader of a wide range of literature, from historical non-fiction to Graphic Novels, or Classics to modern fiction. I have particularly been fascinated by Dracula and the journalistic adventures of Jon Ronson. I enjoy learning new and interesting subjects and I have begun learning the Violin, and researching Naval history. I indulge in various digital media to relax.
