I am a producer/director with experience of working on a wide range of international observational documentaries and factual series. I am well practiced at working in small teams and on small budgets having worked for numerous indie production companies. In recent years, I have also been working on branded content documentaries, sourcing stories and contributors for high-end commercial films.

I have consistently built strong relationships with contributors making them feel at ease throughout the filming process and working with them to uncover and capture the most compelling stories.

I work well on location and can set up shop in any sort of environment from scrapyards in Sussex to naval warships in the Arctic. I have edit produced several shows and am keen to continue seeing productions through from start to finish.

I'm currently directing my first feature length documentary, which I have been filming over the last three years and am set to finish this November (2017). I am particularly keen to hear about short term projects that might fit in with my shooting dates. Read Less

Isabel was an asset to the series we worked on. It speaks volumes for her attitude and contribution that she started out as a researcher and ended up - on my recommendation - with an AP credit. Isabel goes above and beyond. She is industrious, affable and full of ideas. In short, Isabel is a real team player.
