I’m a self-shooting PD with a Documentary Directing MA from NFTS. I have worked on a range of broadcast docs, most recently as a Shooting PD on Channel 4's Emergency (about the London trauma network) and as a Shooting Producer on an ITV doc about disability and adoption. Other noteworthy credits include DV directing on two Bafta-nominated programmes - the C4 Dispatches obs doc 'Safe at Last: Inside a Women's refuge' (https://twitter.com/c4dispatches/status/1100485658513231873?lang=en) and BBC iplayer's sex education series 'Mimi on a Mission'.
My feature doc 'Faith and Branko' premiered at Hot Docs 2021, Sheffield Doc Fest 2020, and was selected for Dok Leipzig's Golden Section/Audience Award categories. It received the jury's special mention at In-Edit Barcelona and won the best documentary award at SEE Fest LA. It was acquired for broadcast in 2022 by Al Jazeera and the VOD platform Filmin.
I'm resourceful, narrative-driven and perceptive with a genuine interest in people and their stories. I have worked with sensitive subject matter and vulnerable contributors and I'm good with access and building trust. I also have a lot of international /cross-cultural experience - I worked in India for 2 years in total (Delhi, Trivandrum and Mumbai) - I made my NFTS grad doc in Mumbai; I have also lived in Serbia and Belgium and have done a lot of filming with the Roma community (in Serbia and Kosovo).
I'm edit-producing an ITV doc about disability and adoption - this job finishes on September 24th so I'm available for projects after that.
