I’m a self-shooting Producer / Director, Edit Producer and Development Producer. I've worked on everything from features and formats, to live OB's and studio entertainment, but for the last few years I’ve been making factual entertainment and documentaries. I'm an extremely competent shooter and technically proficient (bordering on nerdy); I’ve worked with challenging contributors, shot scenes in extreme environments, negotiated access to a variety of precincts and set up shoots all over the world. I've got sound journalistic instincts and know how to get the best out of people.

In addition to production, I enjoy periodic stints in development, generating ideas, writing treatments, shooting and editing taster tapes. I've pitched to commissioners in London and internationally at MipCom in Cannes, I've won various commissioners, the most recent of which is a documentary called 'Young War Widows' which aired on ITV1.
