I did work experience at production company Windfall Films six years ago and refused to leave. Eventually they started paying me.
Producer / Director on shows like the Christmas Lectures
I’m the Series Producer of the Christmas Lectures for BBC Four
My Typical Day
Most of my time is spent writing and rewriting the scripts and checking that everyone on the lectures team is ok.
What's the best thing you've done in your career?
Move along now…. nothing to see here.
What or who inspired you to follow your career?
What did you want to be after you left school?
I’ve always been torn between becoming a scientist and working in TV so I’m lucky to have a job that let’s me enjoy both of these worlds.
If you weren't doing this job, what would you choose instead?
I’m not really an engineer… shush… don’t tell anyone.
What's your favourite food?
I took a cookery class once and learnt how to make pizzas… worth every penny.
What is the most fun thing you've done?
For one TV show we rebuilt the bouncing bomb and used it to hit a dam in the Canadian wilderness. Planes, history, explosions, what more could you want?
