My broadcast experience stretches across a wide range of factual programmes. I've been responsible for award-nominated, high impact films, including legally and editorially sensitive projects. Have worked on landmark docs, popular factual series and investigative current affairs singles. Developed and directed many of my own films including multiple stripped series and singles for Channel 4 News and BBC Panorama. A seasoned access negotiator, I have worked with religious communities, various NHS Trusts, Local Authorities, Trade Unions and a huge number of non-profits. All my projects are marked by dogged casting for the best possible on-screen contributors.

I work with indies to shape existing slates and start them anew, and have enjoyed senior development roles at companies big and small. I have led teams of various sizes and supported indies during times of growth and change. My development work is marked by journalistic rigour, a high bar for presentation and a programme-maker's creative and pragmatic sensibility for how an idea might actually be made.
