    About me

    I have over 15 years making programmes for broadcast: short journalistic reports, features, corporates, factual entertainment and full-length observational and presenter-led documentaries. Taking initial ideas and pitching, through pre and post-production to broadcast, often working under very challenging circumstances, to tight deadlines and budget.

    I have covered a wide variety of issues and genres, including sensitive topics in difficult places like schools, hospitals, slums and prisons. I have worked with experienced presenters, but also raw talents from all walks of life, where the ability to quickly gain trust and respect is vital.

    Working in a team or independently, and building on my considerable experience in Africa (able to work in Swahili), I have filmed all over the world including challenging environments like Eastern Congo, Haiti, Sudan, Palestine and the Myanmar/Bangladesh border.

    Credits: BBC2, ITV, Channel 4, BBC World, Discovery, Al Jazeera, Reuters, UKTV, TV5 Monde.
