I love making honest, well-crafted documentary films. Stepping into people's lives to share their endeavours and understand their views is a privilege that I cherish and a responsibility I respect.

Typically, I oversee all aspects of the documentary making process, from initial concept, through production and editing, to the delivery of the finished film. I have twice been nominated for the prestigious Grierson Trust documentary awards and, with over 15 years of experience, my films have achieved record ratings and are screened globally.

    I develop, produce and direct a wide range of films and content and have extensive editing experience. Please contact me for a full CV.

    Thank you for your request. We will contact you as soon as possible
