I have 10 years’ experience producing, directing, self-shooting, and series producing, on factual programmes (features, consumer, current affairs and documentary). I’ve worked with many of television’s most popular presenters, and on some of its most established titles. I’m a passionate programme-maker, with sound editorial judgment, great storytelling and journalism skills, and am an excellent self-shooter to boot.
