Director and Producer with a background in drama-docs, observational documentaries & factual. I have written, directed, and edited drama-docs for Discovery ID, as well as conducted many highly stylised & sensitive studio contributor interviews (victims of stalking, parents of murdered teens). I have also written drama scripts for various US drama-docs. Most recently co-wrote a new drama doc series for US tv about supernatural encounters in the wild.

Strong editorial judgement and good journalistic skills. I have also produced on many sensitive access subjects - divorced fathers and underage mothers/ children living with poverty & addiction (ob docs for BBC4, C4, ITV & C5.) Bilingual Urdu/ Hindi fluency. USA O2 & I-Visa holder, CRB checked, BBC Health & Safety Trained. Confident directing drama crews, and strong in the edit - most recently ran two edits concurrently.

As a former actor myself (classically trained at Drama Centre London), I have a thorough understanding of the acting process and am able to work very collaboratively with talent and actors to draw out great performances. Read Less

Ali has a brilliant and incisive mind. With a background in journalism, she has excellent research skills, and can weave a compelling narrative that's backed up by facts. She is also a delightful person with terrific people skills; contributors want to open up to her and give her the whole story.

Gillian Pachter

Ali is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is brilliant with contributors and has a real way of making even the most hesitant feel at ease and open up to her. She is a talented writer and director, brilliant with actors and seems just as at home scripting as when on set heading up a large crew. Her energy, enthusiasm and commitment know no bounds.

Ellen Arnold, Series Producer
