17 show-running SP credits including major Channel Four, Sky Arts and PBS documentary series. A five-part History Channel project that I series produced in 2018 won a Broadcast Digital "Gamechanger Programme" Award in 2019, and was commended for helping to shift viewers' perception of the channel. I've also tackled a celebrity travel challenge filmed across Europe; a successful UKTV property format and a lavish UK-USA escapology series.

Calm under pressure, I am able to work across multiple genres and styles and combine clear management skills with keen editorial judgment. I also have a passion for projects that involve archive. I have worked with contributors and talent of all kinds, in both the UK and USA. I enjoy assembling and running production teams of all sizes. When necessary I will pitch in with talent booking, clearing third parties for archive, sourcing location access and edit producing.

As an edit producer, I am considered a strong script-writer and a safe pair of hands.
