I am an award-winning shooting Producer/Director and former journalist with experience in observational, presenter-led and current affairs documentaries in the UK and abroad for prime-time television.

I have produced and filmed long-form documentaries across a range of genres and styles; from sensitive character led films with vulnerable contributors in challenging circumstances to complex access driven films in remote locations and conflict zones. I enjoy working as a self-shooter on authored films and as part of a larger crew with multiple camera set ups.

I am a strong self-shooter with experience using a range of cameras, gimbals and prime lenses on singles and episodes of series and my films have been nominated for multiple awards including the RTS Journalism Award, Broadcast Award, Amnesty Media Award, One World Media Award, Prix Europa Award and in 2017 winning the Foreign Press Association TV documentary of the year award for Libya's Migrant Hell and in 2018 winning the Foreign Press Association science story of the year for Unreported World: Africa's Perfect Storm.

As a producer I have a proven record of negotiating and maintaining difficult access to institutions and individuals and developing trusting relationships with contributors. As a former journalist I am used to generating story ideas and I have used this experience in honing my storytelling skills for documentary as well giving me a thorough understanding of complex legal and compliance issues.

I was shortlisted for the Edinburgh TV Festival Ones to Watch and I was selected for the prestigious Channel 4 Producer/Director scheme. In 2013 I was one of eight from hundreds of applicants to win a place on the Channel 4 Dispatches Investigative Journalism Programme after transitioning from print. I am also a mentor for one of the One World Media production fund grantees https://www.oneworldmedia.org.uk/production-fund/#mentors

I have filmed throughout the world including: Colombia, Sierra Leone, Iraq, Libya, Mongolia, Madagascar, Italy, Spain, Syria, the Dominican Republic and El Salvador. Read Less
