Her work has spanned Oscar- and Emmy-winning projects such as Bohemian Rhapsody, Elvis, Netflix's The Crown, Hulu's The Great, and BBC's Killing Eve.

Her event work includes the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebrations at Windsor Castle (ITV), Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Opening and Closing Ceremony and London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony. 

She has worked extensively across UK, West End and Broadway theatre and is the co-founder of The Mono Box, a training up and creative network for emerging theatre talent.

Her upcoming work includes Feud on FX, Kaos on Netflix, Saltburn on Amazon, and the final project in her quartet of music icons, Bob Marley: One Love.
