The strangest thing I've ever done...

My first paid TV job was answering the phones on a children’s breakfast TV show in Glasgow where I grew up.

My favourite TV job was directing short films about creative people for BBC’s The Culture Show.

I came to Melbourne because I got a redundancy package around the time of the GFC. I thought I’d stay a few months, but then I met a great guy…

The strangest thing I’ve ever had to do for work was an underwater survival course, where I had to swim out of a submerged helicopter, in the dark, as preparation for going to a vessel mining gas in the Indian Ocean.

Countries I’ve filmed in include; England, Scotland, Jamaica, Israel, several cities in the US, and every state in Australia, except for Tassie.

Once I started a family I transitioned out of production and focused on writing work for TV docos and start-ups. I was also a key person who launched The School of Life in Melbourne and taught there.

Last year I quit a job at a research institute and decided to build something of my own, but the idea has been bubbling away in the back of my mind for some time.

Why I love this work: Other people’s stories give me fuel. I love empowering other people to share their stories, build an audience and make an impact.

What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever had to do for work? Or what job have you loved most? I’d love to hear it.
