About:

I’m a director with a distinct combination: tech savvy, a creative edge and editorial judgement. My technical background has allowed me to create exciting action sequences, technically challenging scenes to create striking visual imagery.

Some of my drama has won multi-awards at festivals, while my TV programmes have been picked to lead series, and has even gained Guardian Newspapers’ programme of the week.

I love collaborating with actors and presenters to secure engaging and truthful performances, and have a vast range of genre experience from commercials to factual to drama.

Directing crewed shoot locations include North America, UAE, Australia, Barbados, Russia and Europe.

Other genres include multi-camera entertainment and current affairs; live and as-for-live in broadcast studios, through to self-shooting on smaller documentaries with FS7, C300, F800 cameras with primes, jibs, sliders, sound and lighting.

I started in the TV industry over 25 years ago as an editor and spliced together many primetime programmes across entertainment, factual, observational documentaries, current affairs and sport – useful skills to ensure what’s been shot elegantly dovetails together! As a result, I can self-edit on AVID and have recently edited 48’ drama/docs through to commission-winning sizzles for prime-time drama series.

I have also had the privilege to coach up-and-coming talent at Ravensbourne University London, The MetFilm School London and Sheffield Hallam University at BA and/or MA level, across multi-camera drama directing and factual production.
