I am a driven and creative Producer/Director who has worked on various factual programmes for BBC, Channel 4 and Radio 4 over the last eight years. I have extensive experience in TV development and production and I've worked with various institutions, including the NHS, police, schools, local authorities and a range of charities. I have worked abroad in difficult environments, set up complicated foreign and UK based shoots and am comfortable when managing vulnerable contributors and sensitive access relationships. I have strong investigative editorial skills, a passion for storytelling and experience of working in edits for series with complex compliance considerations. I am particularly interested in observational documentaries and creative, past-tense factual storytelling.

For background, I was the first person from my family and local comprehensive school to gain a place at Cambridge, and whilst studying there I achieved a First-Class degree in Politics, Psychology and Sociology. After leaving university I earned a place on a Graduate Journalism Internship with BBC Radio 4 and worked across a range of factual and arts programmes. I was then awarded a position on the prestigious Grierson Trust Documentary training scheme, which involved industry training in factual TV and feature film production. I worked for the BBC Documentaries Department in Bristol for 4 years, gaining extensive experience in both development and production, including working on BAFTA-winning factual dramas, short-form content, and specialist factual programmes.

I have worked on several critically acclaimed documentary series including ‘Drugsland’ (BBC Three) and ‘School’ (BBC Two). In 2019 I was named as one of the Edinburgh TV Festival’s ‘Ones to Watch’ and in 2020 I finished working on a critically acclaimed feature documentary project called 'Locked In: Breaking the Silence' (supported by the BFI Doc Society and BBC Storyville).

I've recently started filming on a First Cut project for Channel 4. Read Less
