- Producer / Director / Edit Producer / Shooting PD with prime-time / daytime credits for UK networks,
including BBC, ITV, C4, and Five. I've also produced content for overseas broadcasters, production companies and agencies,
including Fremantle Media Australia, Foxtel, TVNZ, Associated Press Television News and Al Jazeera.

- Versatile director/producer with genre-spanning experience across factual, specialist factual, history, ob-doc, lifestyle, consumer, sport, news, "live" and current affairs programming. I have produced numerous documentaries, often guiding new commissions from development through to TX; worked on a number of popular formats/series that require delivery of a large volume of fast turnaround episodes, and produced hundreds of short films / VTs for a host of programmes, channels, and media outlets.

- I'm a creative, confident and quick thinking edit producer who loves crafting stories, developing characters and creating bold and compelling narratives. My management skills, personable nature and ability to deal with pressure mean I can guide content through all stages of pre and post production, ensuring that delivery deadlines are met and budgets are kept to. I often run multiple edit suites at once (offline and online), and edit produce multiple programmes simultaneously; taking responsibility for script writing, music selection, sourcing archive and liaising with executives and commissioners during the editing process.

- I am an experienced user of Avid Media Composer and Premiere Pro and can produce rough assemblies/sync pulls as required, often working in tandem with editors. I love the edit and have spent many hours in countless suites, learning to adapt my skills to different content that often varies in duration; including short-form VTs, multiple episodes of a series, formatted shows, and one-off documentaries.

- I have extensive experience directing multi-camera shoots on location around the world or working independently as a shooting PD and have an eye for capturing high-quality imagery, spotting stories and bringing the best out of on-screen contributors, which includes experts and the general public. I'm a trusted director of high profile presenters and celebrities and have worked with some of Britain's most popular television personalities, often filming them one on one. I can shoot on numerous camera formats including Sony FS7, FS5, PMW 500, PMW 300, Canon XF305, Canon C300 and Panasonic P2, and I'm always happy to get my hands on new technology.

- I'm extremely proud of my journalistic credentials, which were developed during an eight-year career with ITV News / ITN. I was a correspondent, producer, and presenter and my coverage of breaking news won an industry award. I covered numerous "beats", including business, consumer, politics, crime, and sport. I was also a war correspondent throughout the conflict in Afghanistan. This experience means I can research any subject with speed, accuracy, and tenacity, adapt my writing style to suit different moods and styles and can cope with the pressure of fast turnarounds, tight deadlines and changing situations.

- I am a people person and enjoy managing teams of production staff, including runners, researchers, APs and shooting PDs. I like to lead by example and nurture the talents and skills of those around me, while also creating a positive working environment (even when things are at their most challenging!). Whether I'm working with small crews or large teams, I am proud of my ability to fit in and hit the ground running, whatever the production. Read Less
