I have produced some of the BBC's longest running live events including The Queen's birthday, often adding ambitious new elements while keeping within the long term budgets.

I have worked on BAFTA and RTS award winning shows and directed a wide range of content from highly sensitive pieces to comedy, often with well known talent including Dara O'Briain, and the Prime Minister. I am equally at home directing crews or self-shooting. I've always been invited back to work on subsequent series, or the team's next project.

My camera work is excellent and I have shot actuality, music performances, sports events and talking heads with a-list personalities including Daniel Craig and Prince Harry all round the world. I've also shot in difficult environments such as an A&E department.

I have edit produced highly prestigious programmes such as Trooping the Colour and BBC One's Remembrance Sunday coverage. I've also edit produced daytime shows such as Escape to the Country and A Place in the Sun, and have looked after two edits at once while doing so. Having directed countless insert films for many live events I have then seen those projects through the edit.

I am very calm under pressure and have produced high profile presenters on award winning live programmes including Huw Edwards, Dermoy O'Leary and Kirsty Young. I've also carried out this role on some of the biggest programmes of the year, including the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

As well as having over a decade of industry experience I also have a degree in Film and Video Production. Read Less
