About me

I am a freelance producer and assistant director. My background is in short films, having worked on over 50 in varying capacities. I have experience in camera, lighting, and sound. I am seeking various production, AD, and film crew roles. My key skills are in scheduling, budgeting, social media marketing, database management, and administration.

Please see my website for full filmography:
I run a collaborative filmmaking project called 'Action On The Side', where we make a short film in a month. We also run script development and networking meetings.
