I’m an experienced freelance series producer, senior edit producer and director with extensive credits for UK and major US broadcasters. Having started my career as a specialist factual director at the BBC, I make engaging factual observational documentaries, presenter-led formats, and archive-based films for BBC, C4, ITV, C5, UKTV PBS and Discovery.

I have a proven track record in making any subject accessible, entertaining and interesting. From history documentaries that appeal to a wide audience, to medical ethics, mental health issues, architecture and business formats.

Always enthusiastic, energetic and collaborative, I am skilled in working with new talent and contributors on location, crafting films in the edit and running large production teams.
