When did you decide to work in post & why? What was your path to this point?
I still haven’t consciously made that decision. My Blue Peter dreams are still very much alive. Me:
Anthea Turner – Blue Peter Legend:
What’s your favorite thing about post and why?
It’s warm and people bring you stuff.
Advice for anyone entering post?
Work hard and be nice to people. It’s all about your people.
Is there something you wish you knew when you were starting out?
Yes! One day people won’t get confused when they see you are cutting their sports ad…Even though they were expecting a boy called Charlie. SUCKERS!
Can you tell us about a few projects you are proud of and why?
I can’t choose between my children…Just play my reel, it’s awesome.
How do you take your coffee?
If someone brings me a coffee, I’ll take it (I’m starting to sound lazy now).
Who is someone that inspires you and why?
These two legends! It’s an equal first place for them both. They are both completely amazing and taught me everything I know about being a good human.
If I did have to choose a non-family member though.. It would be the one and only Magnum PI. No explanation needed, the man is perfection.
Favorite time of day?
7am to 8am…Even when I’m working, I get this window to be a mum…and drink coffee while I’m doing it…
Best show to stream
The Morning Show – SO GOOD!!!!!
Favorite insta account
I’m really good at giving haircuts.
Would you rather fly or be invisible?
100% fly…In tights and a cape.

Kesha – Woman
What is your office “must have?”
