I'm a highly experienced TV Producer/Director, with director credits on some of the UK's best known TV brands, including Countryfile, Gardeners' World and The One Show. I work hard to get the very best performance from high end talent. I direct crew, edit produce and self shoot. I have a reputation for being rock solid and unflappable.

My strengths are writing, creative vision, and leading small teams. I have a track record of self-shooting to the highest broadcast standards on FS7 and PMW. I'm experienced at running all aspects of post production. I have a background in newspaper and broadcast journalism, and experience in overseas shoots. I've also 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, and the fun of One Show films about saucy postcards, to explaining complicated and controversial issues from shooting and poultry mass production to a BBC1 audience. Read Less
