I’m a highly-experienced Specialist Factual / Documentary P/D, skilled at getting people to open up on camera, and constantly hungry for engaging ways to present stories on screen. I’m extremely comfortable interviewing people from any strata of society, from Prime Ministers to YouTube extremists, Moon Walkers to Willow Weavers, and I’m equally happy crafting presenter-led programmes and series.

I’ve been fortunate that most of my projects have enjoyed extremely healthy audience figures (my most recent film ‘9/11: Escape from the Towers’ topped the iTunes chart), and that many of the programmes and series I’ve worked on have been award-nominated, from Emmys to BAFTAs.

Alongside making films, I also very much enjoy writing and nurturing ideas, and have worked-up a number of funded development projects as well as story-producing on several series.

Finally, I’m happy to self-shoot on smaller cameras such as the FS7 or the XF305 where the narrative (or budget!) demands. Read Less
