Producer/Director & Edit Producer:
Self-Shooter/Experienced Crew Director
Full Clean UK Car/Motorbike License
I-Visa

A story driven self-shooting/editing/lighting PD/EP with a wide range of UK and international broadcast production experience. I have built up a diverse range of skills and experience producing and making factual, entertainment, documentary, reality, daytime, consumer, crime and children’s programmes for both TV and web TX.

Whether I am making formatted entertainment series or long form documentaries in the UK or abroad I'm able to work with and produce a wide range of contributors/talent in all manor of challenging production environments, across many different walks of life. Adept at crafting and delivering strong story focused programmes, ever conscious of series editorial direction and goals. Extremely creative, able to originate ideas and develop formats where appropriate with a focus always on acute attention to detail when it comes to shoot planning, setup or execution.

Comfortable working under pressure and to tight schedules having successfully worked all over the world, encountering all types of issues from logistical to editorial, where the ability to solve problems in a calm and considered manor was key.

Excellent scriptwriter, able to creatively identify and develop ideas and stories on screen and in the edit. I have honed a strong technical knowledge over the years through practical experience, able to shoot on a wide variety of camera's and formats, as well as being experienced in production lighting, sound and equipment.
