Confident directing full crew & working with high profile talent but equally at happy working alone self-shooting.

Have shot for broadcast for all 5 terrestrial television channels.

Proven track record dealing with highly sensitive situations, developing relationships with contributors. Always calm under pressure.

Tenacious and hard working with sound editorial judgement, I always bring fresh ideas to a production and the ability to tell a compelling story.

Edit directing experience includes taking full hour long episodes through the edit for BBC1 and BBC2

My credits span many genres but I especially enjoy working on engaging factual programming and challenging observational documentary films Read Less
