I am an experienced Manchester based Producer / Director, with a passion for challenging and ambitious observational documentaries. I have worked on a variety of documentaries, dealing with a wide range of contributors; from heart surgeons to young people suffering with alcohol addiction. It has been my ability to form relationships and a rapport with contributors from all walks of life that has been key to helping the productions I have worked on run smoothly. I have shot for broadcast on the FS7, C300, XF305 and the Sony PMW200. I have a full driver’s license with no points and my own vehicle. Read Less
