P/D and Senior Development Producer of factual, branded content and current affairs docs. Approach all programmes with journalistic rigour, a strong sense of style and tone, and an emphasis on casting the best contributors and experts to bring a story to life for the widest possible audience. I've recently been nominated for the prestigious Wincott Award "Best Video Journalism" for my recent BBC Panorama, Trapped By My Mortgage, an investigation into the treatment of thousands of homeowners after the 2008 crisis.
Full of ideas, I’ve run development teams at major indies and been instrumental to multiple commissions. I have strong television instincts and enjoying thinking about how stories and emerging trends can be turned into series and/or formats. A seasoned access negotiator, I have worked with religious communities, various NHS Trusts, Local Authorities, Trade Unions and a huge number of non-profits. I have cast and filmed with sensitive contributors including couples with dementia, young dads in prison, older alcoholics, and also have an arsenal of skills for finding the hard-to-reach. Especially interested in using experience across platforms to explore new ways of storytelling, finding stories where I can inject humour, and investigative programmes. Read Less
