As a Casting Producer, I have scouted in nightclubs, on the street, and in schools and have an excellent track record in selecting perfect contributors. I work well with everyone and have built good relationships with difficult people and children for both sensitive and light-hearted programming.

Travelling between contracts has contributed to my go-getting and relentless attitude in the workplace, and to date, I have hitch-hiked alone through Borneo to meet an orang-utan, trekked through Chile without a lot of Spanish and slept rough in Central Australia.
