About me

I am a multimedia producer, director and editor with 20 years’ experience in news, media and the NGO sector. Most recently I have written and directed an audio drama podcast series for Save the Children called ‘Anywhere but Home’. Previously I worked for Reuters in an 18-year career, managing teams of editors, photographers and videographers to produce multimedia stories for multiple digital platforms. I commissioned and directed journalists and visual storytellers from across the globe producing award-winning stories from conflict to climate change. I have also worked for Save the Children producing short films, photo essays and and infographics on responses ranging from the Rohingya refugee crisis to famine in East Africa.
