I'm a confident, creative, experienced SP with 18+ years of prime time TV experience, 10+ as Series Producer both in commissioning and production.
I have expertise in managing happy, productive teams and am used to delivering content with production values way above the budget.
I have expertise in UK wildlife and extensive contacts to build teams and deliver engaging, surprising content. I'm an excellent script writer and highly experienced trouble shooter in the edit. Beyond scripting, I have contributed to BBC Wildlife Magazine and The Independent as a writer and photographer. I was part of the 2018 Wildscreen nomination jury for the Panda Awards.
As a member of The One Show's senior commissioning team I was instrumental in shaping the VTs across a huge range of genres including Natural History, History, Science, Arts, Formats and Factual Entertainment. I have strong editorial judgement and the ability to tell a story in a way that reaches the widest possible audience.
I have excellent team management skills having run both small and large teams in the UK and abroad.
I have worked with a wide range of high profile talent including Louis Theroux, Alan Titchmarsh, Dermot O'Leary, Miranda Krestovnikoff, Mike Dilger, George McGavin, Dan Snow, Anita Rani, Matt baker, Alex Jones, Ruth Goodman, Angellica Bell, Gyles Brandreth, Neil Oliver, Robert Winston, Charlie Dimmock, Christine Walkden, Diarmuid Gavin, Laurence Llewellyn Bowen, Carol Klein, Lorraine Kelly.
I also have considerable experience in tracking down and nurturing new talent - both on screen and behind the scenes. Read Less
