About me

I'm a freelance video producer who has worked on a broad range of projects from international news stories and documentaries, to music videos and food road trips for clients including The Guardian, The New York Times and Tate Media. A versatile shooter, I love filming in all environments and taking on a challenge. My experience includes filming underwater, on boats, in mountains, in race cars and abroad. I have a keen eye for detail and strive to produce videos that are always both visually and intellectually compelling. I enjoy taking projects from concept to completion. I'm comfortable researching, pitching, directing, filming and editing alone, but also thrive when working in a team and when given the chance to collaborate with others.
