After graduating film school and 3 years working as a Focus Puller & Camera Operator, I got my first big break nearly 20 years ago shooting a documentary series ‘Rivers of the World’ for the BBC and very quickly found myself 3 days up river filming indigenous tribes in the Amazon Basin. Well who knew! Ever since then I’ve been fortunate enough to work on a wide range of programmes including Drama docs, Commercials, Presenter Lead Factual Entertainment, and Feature Films.

My experience of both narrative and documentary filmmaking skillsets opens up many creative opportunities.

Once cheekily described as ‘never knowingly under gadgeted’, I’ve embraced the rapidly changing technology and enjoy collaborating with producers and directors at an early phase of a project to create visually stylish work.


The CH4 /Fox Searchlight Feature doc ‘YOUNG@HEART’ won a double Rose d’Or in Lausanne and had a Cinema release in the USA

24 HOURS IN A&E was BAFTA nominated in 2013

CITI was gold winner best documentary Evcom Clarion Awards 2016

Experience shooting Drama, Primetime documentaries, Cars, Multi Camera, Studio and Location Lighting. Well travelled including Middle East, Africa and South America.

Based in London but available to work all over the world.
