Creative and passionate filmmaker and communications professional with a wide-ranging skill set and a proven track record in fast-paced production teams creating content for multiplatform campaigns, including Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day.

Extensive experience developing science and factual documentaries for the BBC, Channel 4, Netflix, National Geographic, and the Discovery Channel. Specialises in editing promos and taster tapes, including Idris Elba’s ‘Mandela, My Dad and Me’ (feature doc), and Dope (Netflix).
