I am an experienced DV director and have experience in factual entertainment, observational documentary and property. I have also worked in corporate and online, specifically for BBC3. I am a confident self shooter on many professional broadcast cameras such as the c300, fs7 and xf305.

I have cast for many productions, whether these are high volume or very sensitive contributors.

In addition I have also worked in development where I have been responsible for gaining access and filming permission to some of the biggest companies in the UK.

I am capable of cutting on Avid, premier and FCP.

I have a clean drivers license and have a BBC health and safety production certificate. Read Less
