Harriet Thorpe is a great friend and mentor to me. She's my hero.
'Team work makes the dream work' is the moral of the brilliantly captivating Chitty Chitty Bang Bang musical (the number 1 musical in the UK at that too)-and it's a motto I like to live my life by.

Let me start off by writing that I don't even know if I can adequately express just how EPIC in caps last weekend in London, was for me.
...As many of you know I'll soon be setting off for a few days at the Cannes Film Festival... First up is a dress fitting for frocks for the festival and BritMums Live with Fever London in the Big Smoke and a crazy-early flight to the South of France on Tuesday morning.
Last week, my lovely friend, the fantastic actor Leonard Fenton came to visit baby Alexander. We ate at my parent's fabulous Greek restaurant The Olive Tree and Len entertained my toddler, Oliver with his animal impressions and imaginative stories. It was such a fun filled day, I want to bottle it up and treasure it forever.
For those who don't know, I'm a freelance writer/director directing drama, documentary, shorts, promos and music videos. I've been lucky enough to work with some of the leading production companies in the world and for diverse broadcasters from the BBC to film company Lionsgate UK- and I've even scooped some awards to boot along the way. I love my job-truly, I feel like I get to play and get paid for it.
