    About me

    I have been shooting TV and documentary for the past 6 years now. This work has taken me to USA and mainland Europe. The work has been very varied from live performance TV for Channel 4 to Reportage in the Caribbean. I am also a proficient editor and I have just recently completed 4 films for Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders
