"Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures." HW Beecher

I'm a Producer/ Director/ Writer with a passion and specialism in documentary and factual film making and development. I want to take the audience on a journey, deepening their understanding of a subject, providing surprising insight, even changing their stance on a subject. This could be through a compelling human interest story, a captivating character or through unique access to a story. I'm good at building relationships with my contributors and presenters, bringing out strong performances from those I work with, (I have many examples) empowering them to have confidence in front of the camera. Described as a "safe pair of hands', 'can handle anything thrown at her', 'tenacious' , 'efficient', 'creative' - your production is in good hands. With over sixteen years spent producing and directing broadcast TV, corporate films, educational and branded content, my production skills are broad. I aim to continue producing inspiring films for broadcast and digital platforms.

I am particularly inspired by moving storytelling and original feature docs such as those showcased in the BBC Storyville strand telling amazing human interest stories.

When not working, I volunteer as an early years School Governor, and enjoy sculpting and running. Read Less
