An experienced Series Producer/Director, PD and self-shooter, specializing in History, Arts, Music and Archaeology .

I have produced programmes for many British and foreign broadcasters including: BBC2, BBC4, C4, More4, C5, History Channel, Discovery Networks, Biography, SBS, PBS, TRT, Arte.

I am equally happy directing presenter-led or commentary based documentaries. I can self-shoot on C300/5D/ Sony F5 and direct single camera units, multi-cam or manage large teams on shoot. Presenters worked with include: Lucy worsley, Monty Don, Alice Roberts, Bettany Hughes, Suzy Klein, Rob Bell and Tony Robinson.

I have experience of directing throughout the UK from Lands End to the Orkneys. I have directed shoots around the world throughout Europe (Austria, Czech Republic, France, Georgia, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, Holland, Greece); the Middle East and North Africa (Syria, Jordan and Egypt); USA(Detroit, New York, Washington DC, Alabama, San Francisco, LA) and India.

I have worked with many institutions: Brno Philharmonic Orchestra, English Heritage, National Trust, Historic Royal Palaces, British Museum, Science Museum, V&A, MOD, US armed forces , Egyptian Council of Antiquities, Greek Ephoria, Smithsonian, English Nature, Westminster Abbey and Houses of Parliament....

I have a specific personal interest and expertise in ancient and world history (MA Classical Heritage - Bristol University).

Prior to Producing and Directing, I gained invaluable experience working in all roles from runner to AP and from Development producer to edit producer. I gained experience of many genres from entertainment to current affairs and have also worked in feature film drama, music promos, commercials, theatre and web content. Read Less
