I’ve directed prime-time factual TV for BBC2 and BBC3, Channel4, 5 and Discovery/TLC.
I bring clear well-thought-out leadership based on solid experience and expertise.
I’m also a stylish and distinctive self-shooter, passionate about character-led stories.
I have very substantial experience in both scripted and unscripted storytelling across a wide spectrum of genres -
from authored ob-doc actuality to formatted factual entertainment and drama.
I’ve worked in the US and New York and was based in Australia for five years.
Previously I directed commercials in London and drama in Hamburg for NDR.
