Award-winning filmmaker, motor-biking mother and occasional ballerina.

About me

Formerly an Executive Producer with world renowned Darlow Smithson Productions, I am a multi-award winning filmmaker with 26 years experience in television and corporate film production. I have written, produced and directed dozens of hours of programming for global broadcasters including, BBC, Channel 4, PBS, Discovery Channel and National Geographic.

A pedant for detail, I ensure every film I make is beautifully crafted and that the process of producing that film has been positive for everyone involved. I love heading-up creative teams, and enjoy bringing the best of everyone’s combined talent to the screen.

Experience

My childhood passion for classical ballet allowed me to hone the audio/visual skills that I now use as a filmmaker. Fresh out of college, I joined the BBC at 18. Within 6 years I was a freelance shooting/director, creating documentaries for primetime audiences. I progressed onwards and upwards to Series and then Executive Producer.

In television I have amassed a huge amount of experience in Specialist Factual, Current Affairs, Observed Documentary and Dramatic Reconstruction.

In the corporate sector I have run my own successful independent production company making specialist films within both the UK and US criminal justice sectors.

More recently I have challenged myself to master the art of very short-form filmmaking, for corporate clients. I enjoy finding new and visually engaging ways to make thumb-stopping content for use on social media platforms.
