About me
Having spent my career working predominantly in documentaries and branded content, I have honed the skills to bring to life the most creative stories for both broadcast and commercial purposes. I have a passion for storytelling and am tenacious in seeking out the core of the story to create content that is both genuine and impactful. Working closely with creatives and commissioners throughout my career, I have developed the interpersonal skills adept for successfully navigating production challenges, whilst maintaining creative intent. I am experienced in working with all major broadcasters gaining strong and honest access across an array of subject matters from police and the health service to a documentary series highlighting the impact of eight global brands. More recently, my work in branded content has led me to some fantastic advertising and media agencies to produce creative short form content. With a strong track record in guiding the narrative in sensitive circumstances. I have honed the key skills for good documentary producing; building and nurturing contributor relationships, story producing, developing casting strategies and bringing to life diverse subject matters. I am unflappable, able to make clients and contributor feel comfortable in any situation, My wealth of experience in rigged, formatted, observational, long and short-form documentaries allows me to approach situations with tenacity.
