I am an Executive Producer and Audio Consultant. I freelance regularly for BBC Sounds, Radio 4 and Audible.

My favourite part of the process is coming up with ideas and new podcast formats. I love listening to clients’ needs and working with them to find the best way to execute their ideas. Most recently I created Changes for Annie Mac and have developed ideas for Sandi Toksvig, Bernardine Evaristo, the BBC World Service, BBC Children’s, Curtis Brown & Decca Records. In a crowded podcast market, I absolutely love the challenge of coming up with ideas that stand out.

For the last decade, I have produced regularly on ‘Outlook’, ‘Front Row’ and ‘The Conversation’ and have created features for ‘Woman’s Hour’ on motherhood, addiction, estrangement and sex.

I am particularly fascinated in mental health, well-being, personal stories, relationships, parenting, feminism, and the arts.

I hosted and produced one of BBC Sounds’ first podcasts, ‘Duvet Days’ where I jumped into bed with great artists including Emeli Sande, Christine and the Queens, Jordan Stephens and Munroe Bergdorf to chat all things burnout, mental health, creativity and sleep.

Recent projects include:
Barred with Nadine Shah, Radio 4, Cup and Nuzzle
Calm Equals, Decca Records, Cup and Nuzzle
Vashti Harrison on Augusta Savage, BBC Children’s
Get Happy with Oliver Burkeman, Audible, Wisebuddah
The Why Factor: Resilience, BBC
Postnatal FAQ podcast, Apple podcasts
Hooked, Front Row, Radio 4
‘Life After’, ‘Birth, Bump and Beyond’, ‘The Chain’ and ‘Women in One’ for BBC Woman’s Hour

I worked as an actor before completing my MA in Radio Production at Goldsmiths University and continue to do voiceovers.

I am currently producing PAGE, a podcast where authors discuss a single page of their book. Guests dissect the one page that explores a breakthrough moment or how they got through a tough time. The aim is that each page will help and support listeners in some way. Guests include: Rhik Samadder, Michael Rosen and Caitlin Moran.
