I’m a director who periodically writes, with credits on: BBC TV, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, Disney+, National Geographic, Discovery ID, A&E, C&I, Reelz and ZDF.

I’ve dramatised and directed key aspects of the second world war for Disney+ in Nazi Megastructures: America’s War, analysed the causes of death with drama biopics in Autopsy: The Last Hours OfDennis Hopper, Glen Campbell, Burt Reynolds, Luke Perry, Kate Spade and Elizabeth Montgomery, and purely directed BBC TV’s Doctors and ITV’s Emmerdale.

Disseminating true crime into television, I have chronicled the lives of serial killers to stalkers, rapists and more. With over 40 one-hour programmes transmitted including Obsession: Dark Desires, The Killer Beside Me, Behind The Myth and DCI Colin Sutton investigating Levi Bellfield in Born To Kill?

Contrasting these have been lighter stories starring Timothy Spall in Goldfish, John Wells and John Fortune in The Two Johns, Patsy Palmer in Another Green World, and James Cosmo in A Long Way To Start.

I started out as an editor and lighting cameraman, and still use those skills in helping development teams create sizzles to pitch decks.

I’m also proud to be a full voting member of BAFTA.


Based in London and Gosforth, Newcastle.
