My main field of experience is in factual, history and arts and drama recon programmes. I have directed work for UK terrestrial channels, US and UK cable networks in popular and niche subjects incorporating many genres into my work (obs docs, profiles, scripted drama, multi-camera performance, magazine and archive docs). I’ve worked with and scripted for the highest profile and demanding talent. I have entirely self-shot several of my films. My debut drama short, 'Janet and Bernard', was shown at festivals across the world.

I have filmed in locations all over the world, including the USA, Brazil, Soweto, Ukraine, Iceland, Cuba, Jamaica, India, Namibia and Senegal, all for network transmission. Many of my productions have been broadcast overseas and presented at festivals. My recent film, 'Grime, Bow and How UK Hip-Hop Found its Voice' was nominated for RTS Best Arts Programme, 2013 Read Less
