I’m a capable and dedicated filmmaker and already have 8-years-experience across a wide range of programming. My key strengths include identifying narratives and then delivering the quality visuals needed to portray it on screen. I have a proven track-record in building relationships with contributors, adapting to sensitive situations and have a solid understanding of editorial guidelines.

I have produced and directed items for Helicopter Heroes and Countryside 999 that I’ve taken right through the edit. As Assistant Producer on Helicopter Heroes: Down Under, I spent 3 months flying and shooting with air ambulances in Sydney in challenging situations - I have completed over 500 flying hours. I’ve worked on fixed rig shows, directed drone operators, shot in crews and cast contributors for a variety of programmes.

My most recent project was shooting ‘The Yorkshire Dales and The Lakes’, an 8 part docu-soap for More4 following the lives of those who live and work in the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. I produced and directed on location for 6 months and was solely responsible for the editorial on the ground as well as managing other team members on complex shoots (from climbing mountains to abseiling in caves).

In 2017 I was nominated in the Broadcast Tech Awards, and ‘The Yorkshire Dales and The Lakes’, has picked up a series of Awards and Nominations. Read Less
