Making primetime documentaries for BBC 2 and lead films for Countryfile and Panorama, I've worked alone in countries such as Greece and Egypt, and overseen complex productions and multi camera shoots, from boat races on the London Thames to a road trip across Romania. A confident and assured director I'm visually creative and get the best out of production and on-screen talent, making programmes with energy, cinematic treatments and natural performances.

Working in History, Fact Ent, and Obs Doc means I can hunt out stories, structure compelling narratives and produce iconic imagery, while my background in Current Affairs allows me to approach every project with journalistic and editorial rigour. Followed with confident producing in the edit I deliver strong narratives, entertaining, polished and engaging programmes in tight timeframes with limited resources.
