I’m a self-shooting P/D and Edit Producer, I work factual-entertainment series, features and occasionally documentaries. I've been a self-shooter for over ten years, I’ve shot everything from glossy high-end property series to intimate scenes with vulnerable young people. I also have my commercial drone pilots license.

I’ve worked with challenging contributors, shot scenes in extreme environments, negotiated access to a variety of precincts and set up shoots all over the world. I've got sound journalistic instincts, know how to build trust, work with talent and get the best out of people.

As an Edit Producer I’ve cut some tricky programmes, I know how to build a story with clarity and humour. I’ve crafted pilots that have gone on to be commissioned into ten part series and cut returning series where I’ve had to ‘learn the recipe’ very quickly.

In addition to production, I enjoy periodic stints in development, generating ideas, writing treatments, shooting and editing taster tapes. I enjoy pitching ideas and I’ve won various commissions. Read Less
