    About me

    I am a Documentary Filmmaker, Editor, Colourist and Cinematographer.

    Show reel: behindthefacade.com/work

    My first documentary, "My God, I'm Queer" (2020), is is being distributed by Channel4 and Film4 in the UK and screening at film festivals in England, Wales, North America, Canada and India .

    As a Colourist and Editor I have full access to a calibrated DaVinci Resolve editing/colour studio.

    As a DP/Cinematographer I have full access to a full frame cinema camera (C500 MkII), lighting and sound equipment.

    I am a highly experienced interviewer, comfortable interviewing contributors about very personal and challenging topics.

    My experience leading a multi award-winning charity has given me the life experience to understand how to approach complex and challenging topics with compassion, authenticity and empathy.

    I am highly experienced at being behind or in front a camera - appearing multiple times on BBC News (around the UK), BBC News 24, Sky News, Channel 4, BBC World Service, ITV News, The Guardian, Independent, LBC Radio, BBC Asian Network, Birmingham Mail and also Canadian breakfast television.

    In 2015, I was voted the 6th most influential LGBT person in the UK by the Independent on Sunday because of the high profile work that I do.

    Finally, I am a sought after keynote public speaker who talks about the importance of challenging limiting beliefs, unconditional love, finding inspiration from our darkest moments and never, ever giving up.

    Additional Information

    My main roles are as a Film Colourist, Editor, Cinematographer/DP, and also Filmmaker/Director for documentaries.

    I edit, colour correct and colour grade in the industry standard software for advanced colour work - DaVinci Resolve Studio.
