I am a highly experienced, award winning Series Producer and Producer/Director with strong narrative skill and exceptional technical knowledge. For the past 9 years I have made films for every major UK broadcaster. Prior to this I was the Deputy Editor at ITV's award winning Tonight with Trevor McDonald commissioning and exec’ing more than 100 films. I have extensive experience of running both large and small teams. I have worked all over the world, often in hostile environments including Peru, The Philippines, Burma, India, Senegal, Iraq and Pakistan. I am an accomplished self shooter on C300, FS7 and 5D cameras. I am confident working with contributors and equally with big name presenters. In 2011 I won a Rockie from the Banff World Television festival for best documentary and in the same year I collected a prestigious One World Award for my film from the aftermath of the Pakistan floods. Most recently I have series produced and directed a ground breaking 5 x 1 hr series about Tibet - leading the first non Chinese crew for 2 decades. Read Less
