Available September 2018.

Highly experienced Specialist Factual, Factual Features and Observational PD & Edit Producer with prime time credits for The BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, Sky1, Nat Geo US, Discovery US & The Science Channel US.

I try to make every penny and every frame count and make editorial decisions calmly with a sharp eye for shaping narrative to ensure sometimes multiple, fast-turn-around edits run smoothly to deadline.

Whether helping to set the style of new formats on lead episodes of series like 'Four Rooms' or authoring single documentaries I'm an all rounder with an intuitive feel for the needs of commissioners and execs.

I enjoy working with talent as well as building trusting relationships with contributors to create things of beauty and presence with gripping, accessible narrative.
