I’m an edit producer and producer/director working across a wide range of genres from documentaries to history and natural history. Having spent a lot of time in the edit, my strengths include story telling and script writing for a number of different channels. Many of the docs I’ve worked on have required identifying key characters and storylines and maintaining long standing, good access with individuals and institutions (Kew Gardens, Historic Royal Palaces) alike.

I have worked with a number of presenters from the more experienced, such as Stephen Fry, Sophie Raworth and Bruce Parry, to new presenters such as Ben Garrod (Secrets of Bones) and really enjoy working with them to get the best performance.

As SP of Britain’s Royal Weddings for BBC1, I was responsible for 2 fast turnaround hour long documentaries on the history of royal weddings, running a team of 15 across bases in both London and Cardiff, with shoots all over the UK and a number of edits working at once.

In development I’ve worked on successful pitches for Call Centre (BBC3), Britain’s Royal Weddings (BBC1) and BAFTA winning documentary Between Life and Death (BBC1). Read Less

I hit it off with Sue the moment we first met, she's got a great interest and joy for television, and a very likeable personality. When she joined the team she got straight on with her role, really embracing the series style and tone. It was an archive show, so we were straight into the edit which she ran efficiently and creatively. Her storytelling and scripting was good and she was brilliant at taking and realising notes from our Exec and Commissioner. During the busy post production phase I left Sue in charge, whilst I was on leave and she ran all the bookings superbly well. I'm looking forward to the next opportunity I'll have to have her as part of the team.
