Hi - I'm a highly experienced PD/EP with credits on some of the UK's best known TV brands, including Countryfile, Gardeners' World and The One Show. I recently edit produced fast turn around films for the launch of BBC1's new daytime commission Morning Live.

I have a track record of unravelling tricky edits and getting programmes over the line with commissioners:
PD/EP Countryfile: fast turnaround films for BBC1 including wildlife, lifestyle and investigations, and Producing full 60m shows.
EP: Morning Live : daily deadlines for short films for topical /current affairs show.
EP 6x45m : A Matter of Life and Debt, Curve Media for BBC1.
PD/EP : 4x60 Nick Knowles' Original Features, BBC for Home Channel

My background as a journalist means I know how to spot a story, develop it, and tell it to a wider audience. From script to location to edit.

My core strengths are writing, creative vision, and motivating small teams to give their best performance. I'm especially skilled at getting the very best from high end talent: Matt Baker, Nick Knowles, Julia Bradbury, Giles Brandreth, John Craven, Phil Tufnell, Anita Rani, Tim Wonnacott.

I self-shoot to the highest broadcast standards on FS7. I'm experienced at running all aspects of post production.
I have experience in overseas shoots, and I've worked on high profile TV formats and Development.

I'm versatile and capable... turning my hand to anything from the rarified specialist world of gardening, to the fun of One Show films about saucy postcards. Or explaining complicated and controversial issues like shooting snow hares, and poultry mass production, to a BBC1 audience. Read Less
