About me: I am a network trained Line Producer and Production Manager with many years experience. Working as a live gallery PA I have often combined the two roles which means I can be very versatile. I have worked in drama, light entertainment, news, current affairs and sport.

With John McKenna Productions I worked on 55 pre promotions for the Winter Olympics 2014. I worked on Unreported World from the beginning for 5 years. I made "Lost Worlds" for The History Channel in the USA which became their most successful series. I also make my own equestrian programmes which are transmitted on Channel 4, Sky Sports, Setanta, ESPN and Transworld Sport.
