Since graduating with distinction from an MA in Documentary Filmmaking, I have worked across film, television and radio in a variety of roles from pre to post-production. I'm a confident self-shooter who can work with a range of cameras, and a fast and experienced editor fluent in both Avid and Premiere Pro. I have an eye for compelling characters and powerful narratives, and have experience in gaining access to sensitive subjects in difficult environments.

After graduating, I spent 18 months as part of the team making 'Pistorius' - a four part documentary series exploring the life and murder trial of paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius. Originally hired as a Researcher, I later became an Assistant Editor before joining the writing team for the final stages of the project. The series is scheduled for release on Amazon in Autumn 2018.

In 2017, I received my first commission as a director to make a short documentary for BBC iPlayer on the subject of Love. 'Lillith' was released on Valentine's Day 2018. Read Less
