About Me

My career started at the BBC in 1998 where I trained in all areas of factual production, taking my camera-work to an advanced level.

My training continued under Patrick Uden at Uden Associates where as a junior producer I was taught how to write commentary and edit produce.

Cutting my director’s teeth on popular formats such as the Apprentice, Supernanny and Trauma (the first ever “blue flashing light” series), I eventually made the move towards single docs after winning a commission for my idea “Glamour Models, Mum & Me” for BBC3, which continues to be screened around the world. 

Having always had an interest in drama as well as documentary, 2013 saw me completing a diploma in writing and directing drama for the screen at Raindance Film School.

I have since directed three short dramas and won multiple awards at international film festivals. I am always working on my next drama project as well as compulsively researching new documentary ideas. I remain flexible to different styles, keeping abreast of evolving trends and working across all major channels for both UK and US broadcasters.

Outside of work I enjoy jamming with my musical friends, embarking on far flung adventures, running along the Thames and spending time with my huge extended family.
