After studying journalism at the University of Sheffield, Alex’s first step into the industry was with Channel 4, as one of ten trainees from thousands of applicants, on the 2012 Production Trainee Scheme.
Whilst being trained as a researcher by Channel 4 for a year, in everything from street casting, to shooting and editing, she worked at Tiger Aspect Productions. Here she gained invaluable experience in both development and production, across all possible genres, including comedy entertainment, factual and drama. Her bright talent and innate instinct for what makes good television did not go unnoticed there, and she was asked to stay for another year.
After two years at Tiger, Alex joined Melinamedia as an opportunity to be a part of establishing a brand new company, further her skillset and work with the truly talented and experienced people in the company.
Despite her passion for developing innovative and compelling television, Alex thinks in another life she might have been an interior designer or architect.
