I am a self-shooting documentary filmmaker who makes intimate, up-close and personal films about people who remain on the fringes of the social spectrum. My films are character driven and anchored in the present tense.

In 2016, I was selected out of 900 applicants to be a New BBC Documentary Director. My first film for television was a 60' authored documentary about my Granddad who suffers from Dementia. The film was shot over 2 years and was commissioned for BBC 1 and premiered at Sheffield Doc/Fest in 2017.

I have shot and directed several films for The Guardian and The British Council, making documentaries about homelessness, mental health, gay rights, and the refugee crisis. I have filmed in France, Egypt and the UK, and am currently working as a director at Minnow Films, where I am developing new ideas for future BBC documentaries. Additionally, I am assisting the Emerging Talent Team at Otherfield Documentary Festival as a programmer.

Prior to receiving a distinction from film school (MA in Ethnographic and Documentary Film - Practical), I graduated with First Class Honours in French and English Literature, from The University of Edinburgh. I am a bilingual French / English speaker. Read Less
