Natural history credited cam op, scientist and conservationist, past natural history university lecturer, self-confessed tech head, adventurer and Ironman triathlete.

I have experience in and I’m confident at researcher roles and archiving, data management and wrangling, editing features and creating broadcast motion graphics, PMW 400 + other live broadcast setups and RED Digital cinema camera operation down to DSLRs, VR and camera trapping. CAA qualified sub 7kg commercial drone pilot, Canopy Access certified, PADI qualified diver, grips and gimbals, carnets and kit management/maintenance, 4x4 off road driving including ATV’s, diggers and dumpers. Having worked as a bridging shooting producer/director, DOP and camera operator between digital and broadcast for the past year and a half in the sports industry to gain more experience. I am now moving back to natural history broadcast in the hope of transferring learnt and out of genre skills to new and exciting productions.

Always willing to learn and a passion for educating. I enjoy a challenge, thinking outside the box for solutions and ideas to inspire conservationist of the future.
