About Me

I've worked in TV for 15 years on prime time observational, character led documentaries and factual entertainment series including a large number of highly acclaimed and well loved brands such as 'Ambulance' (BBC1), 'Hunted' (Ch4), 'The Secret Life of 4 and 5 Year Olds' (Ch4) and 'The Undateables' (Ch4)...

I've worked in TV for 15 years on prime time observational, character led documentaries and factual entertainment series including a large number of highly acclaimed and well loved brands such as 'Ambulance' (BBC1), 'Hunted' (Ch4), 'The Secret Life of 4 and 5 Year Olds' (Ch4) and 'The Undateables' (Ch4)

I'm an extremely experienced self-shooter and have the technical know how to shoot, light, direct crew and I've filmed whole programmes for broadcast on my own on a range of cameras (FS-7, C300, XF305, PMW200, 5D, EX1-EX3, GoPros). I've filmed extensively in the UK and abroad including Europe, the USA, Nepal, Turkey and Qatar. I also hold an American passport so can work in the States at any time.

I have a strong editorial nose - whether it's identifying and developing stories on the ground or setting up and directing large set pieces, I'm adept at focusing on character and narrative in fast changing situations and high pressured environments.

I'm also experienced in the edit, having produced my own single docs and episodes in prime time series: '21 Kids and Counting' (Ch4), 'Alone at Home' (Ch4) 'Secret Life of 4 and 5 Year Olds' (Ch4), 'Get a House for Free' (Ch4), 'The Undateables' (Ch4), 'The Autistic Gardener' (Ch4), 'The School That Rocks' (BBC3)

Most of all I consider myself a people person. I love filming interesting characters and telling their stories in the most compelling and creative ways I can. I pride myself on building good relationships with everyone I point a camera at. Read Less
