I'm a PD with a background in factual entertainment, reality, factual, current affairs, and news.

I love telling stories, I love meeting people from all walks of life, and I love my job. I'd like to think I can bring you energy, enthusiasm, hard work, and a passion for the craft of television.

My key credits range from 'Come Dine With Me' and 'Four In A Bed' to 'Piers Morgan's Life Stories' and 'Pride of Britain'.

I have extensive experience in competitive reality formats, documentary VTs, human interest stories, celebrity biography, popular journalism, and long-form interviews. I've been a PD and edit producer for five years, and was previously an AP for a further five years. I also work as a broadcast journalist, and began my career as a radio producer.

My particular skills include:

- Working with contributors drawn from members of the public.
- Directing actuality.
- Interviewing celebrities/talent.
- Working with archive material.
- Working with subjects and styles ranging from the humorous, to the journalistic, to the emotive and deeply sensitive.
- Storytelling.
- Celebrity biographies.
- Overseeing casting; overseeing a shoot team; driving on the production process.
- Writing VO with humour, precision, elegance, and factual accuracy.
- Confidence, resourcefulness, and flexibility, in the edit.
- Working to challenging deadlines, on tight turnarounds, and on limited budgets.
- Shooting competently on Canon C300.

Some of my other credits include:

- Our Cilla - ITV 1.
- True Gold: Spandau Ballet - ITV 1.
- Unbelievable Moments Caught On Camera - ITV 1.
- Good Morning Britain.
