About Me

I am a producer and presenter and have a production company focussing on corporate videos.
I freelance for presenting and production work and love working in teams.
I am a versatile member of any crew as my experience spans a lot of the roles which makes me very hands on.

I also sing and have gigs for jazz and am signed to a label for pop/dance.
