I am a versatile producer/director with over 15 years’ experience in commercial, documentary and dramatic content.

Cutting my teeth directing, shooting and editing documentaries in far-flung parts of the world gave me on-the-ground experience in high-pressure situations.

I then went on to make commercial content, learning how to craft stories for brands.

Directing five award-winning feature films (with distribution through Netflix and Amazon) has given me a unique set of narrative skills.

I have worked with brands such as Aviva, SAP, Coca Cola, Heathrow Airport and GEHC.

I own and operate my own Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro shooting kit, with gimbal, various lighting kits and accessories, and run Creative Cloud / DaVinci Resolve on a 2020 iMac with FSI monitor. I also have easy access to any additional camera, lighting or sound gear that is needed.
