I’m an experienced award winning producer/director of specialist factual and factual entertainment content including popular Science, Natural History, Archaeology, Engineering and Obs. Doc. I love directing crews but I’m also a keen self-shooter (FS7) and DJI Ronin operator.

I write serious and humorous scripts, run large teams, bring programmes in on small and big budgets, edit-produce to deadline and commission-brief, and maintain high production value. I enjoy working all over the world from Chinese pig farms to Rwanda’s Lake Kivu and from the Australian bush to European ski slopes.

I build great working relationships with presenters including Kari Byron, Julian Clary, Liz Bonnin, Dallas Campbell, Fiona Bruce, Lucy Cooke, Anna Richardson and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.

Positive Energy won the Broadcast Digital Award for best content partnership film of 2018. Read Less
