My name is Becki Burrows and I am the Creative Director of ohDearyme. I am based in London and have experience in presenting, editing, filming and directing. I am also a trained Make Up Artist, having completed a MASA accreditated course at the London School of Beauty and Make Up, and have recently been brushing up on my photography skills.
This site has been evolving since 2007.. when I embarked on a project (with a little bit of help from my friends) to ‘blag’ it in to festivals, sneak backstage and interview some famous musicians. I managed to shoot, edit and present my own online TV show, which I got online faster than any mainstream broadcaster. I would then go to my day job for 9am on a Monday morning.. (..yes! After no sleep!). I was shortlisted for two Channel Four Talent Awards on the back of that.
This resulted in many brands wanting to work with me. I was sent to New York to interview Usher on behalf of Vodafone – a competition I won after being voted through three rounds on myspace (yes old skool). The film I created in New York led to further commissions from the brand.

I am lucky to say I have travelled to festivals in various different countries interviewing lots of different artists and musicians. I have also lived in South Korea and have even been ‘Brit Girl’ at the Brit Awards for Company Magazine.
My day jobs – have consisted of working for some high profile brands – MTV, ITV, Paramount Pictures, BBC6 and I have been sponsored personally by Pepsi, Vodafone, Clarks, Cadburies amongst others.
I have experience of volunteering for several organisations; including Eaves Charity, the AJR (Association of Jewish Refugees, and Citizens Advice.
