I’ve spent nearly a decade working on the production and development of projects for all the major UK broadcasters, as well as feature documentaries and ‘real people’ commercial campaigns. Sensitive access and casting were my bread and butter for a long time, but history and archive research are my real passion.
My main strengths include complex historical/archival/genealogical research, storytelling, writing, and people finding. I also have experience of conducting historical research for drama, working closely with scriptwriters to add factual depth and nuance to their characters and narratives. I’m a part-time PhD researcher, spending much of my time at a variety of archives and libraries looking for clues in Tudor manuscripts and books, but I’m equally confident working with more modern archive material, having sourced and cleared footage, photographs and newspaper content on projects ranging from blue-chip royal history series to true crime boxsets and current affairs singles.
