About me
I am a confident, dedicated and independent self-shooting producer and editor. With over five years of experience in broadcast and digital, I am comfortable setting up shoots across the world, identifying compelling storylines, capturing them with sensitivity and carrying both the drama and sincerity of these narratives through to the edit. I recently completed a directing course, have directed 3 documentaries and am looking to grow my skills further in this area. Most recently I have worked as a shooting PD and editor for Dan Snow's digital history channel, History Hit TV. In the year I worked for them I made 3 specialist factual documentaries and was a member of the core content team, responsible for commissioning and scheduling across the channel. Previously I worked as a staff member at Special Treats Productions, award-winning producer of arts and music documentaries for the BBC and Sky Arts and industry leading specialist in feature film promotion and events. In this role I worked for clients including Netflix, Universal, Fox, Studio Canal, Working Title, Disney, HBO, Amazon, Sony Pictures and Warner Bros. I also work as an independent videographer of promotional and creative content for businesses, charities, social enterprises and individuals.
