I am a Self-Shooting Director with a twelve-year career in British Television. I have worked with high profile talent on multi-award-winning programmes within both Factual and Drama formats. Telling defiant human stories, my aim is to raise awareness and action around subjects that often go ignored. I have a strong technical shooting style and pride myself in adopting an ethical approach to filmmaking. I have gained complex access to sensitive stories, including LGBTI communities in East Africa, London’s homeless, and the last surviving Mau Mau freedom fighters in Kenya.
I have numerous primetime shooting credits across various factual TV formats, including CH5’s access documentary ‘Extinction Rebellion: The Inside Story’, and BBC Two’s observational series ‘Pilgrimage: The Road To Rome’. I’ve filmed, produced and edited campaign films for multiple international humanitarian organisations in Europe and across East and Central Africa. Previously working as a Sound Recordist, my credits include ‘Married to a Paedophile’, which won a selection of awards including a Royal Television Society award for Best Non-Drama Sound. I have various credits for multi-BAFTA winning company Swan Films, including a 6-part BBC documentary series ‘Segregated America: A School in The South’, and CH4’s Grayson Perry’s series ‘All Man’. My professional training took place across several multi-award-winning UK drama television series, including ‘Spooks’, ‘Call The Midwife’ and ‘The Honourable Woman’
I am knowledgeable and adaptable self-shooter who is confident operating the latest broadcast cameras. I own both Sony FS5 & A7Riii cameras with accessories including gimbals and prime lenses, a DJI Mavic Pro drone, and a range of audio equipment. I am a passionate photographer, a proficient editor on Adobe Premiere, hostile environment trained, recently DBS checked, have a valid I-Visa, and available for overseas work.
Often travelling, I have taught audio and camera workshops to university students in Bhutan and the aspiring youth in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya.
