    About me

    Accomplished shooting DV Director / PD with extensive experience researching, scripting, setting up and filming on complicated foreign shoots across the world.

    I have been lucky enough to have worked in many locations around the world including Russia, Papua New Guinea, India, Central America, Turkey, United States, Europe, Canada, East and West Africa, Madagascar, Egypt and Ecuador with some of the leading television production companies in the UK including Raw Television, October Films, Windfall, DSP and the BBC as well as with NGOs throughout South America and East Africa.

    Multi lingual and thriving on working in extreme and hostile environments I have worked on a diverse range of documentaries over my career shooting everything from Obs Docs and survival to produced reality and comedy in remote and hostile regions. I bring a solid logistical and research head to any project and with a degree from Glasgow School of Art I excel at merging strong camerawork and visual creativity with rigorous storytelling.
