Nan Gourlay

About me: I have worked as a television Production Manager for over 20 years. I started in commercials and corporate production and then moved into mainly factual broadcast production. My background is in theatre - I am from a theatrical family and studied English/Theatre at university. I then further trained as an actor, but decided to make the move into stage management. I have a great passion for storytelling - drama and film, so I would very much like to use my considerable experience in factual TV and shift the focus of my career into drama production
