Eline studied Physics at Imperial College London and has previously trained in Drama & Musical Theatre at the Arts Educational School in Tring, Hertfordshire. Combining these, as well as a background in drama, with cutting edge technology, she prides herself and the team on finding new and innovative ways to tell stories. In fact, Eline has written, directed and produced shows for BBC iPlayer, Endemol, MakersChannel, BBC Three and BBC Teach, and won Best Online Comedy twice at the Lovie Awards! In 2012, after training in improv comedy at Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) in Los Angeles , she sensed a lack of good female comedy parts in the industry, so created her own comedy show Miss Holland. The show was eventually commissioned by BBC Three through Particle6 and internationally distributed! When she’s not producing, she’s playing tennis and when she’s not playing tennis, she’s trying to save the world.
