I’m a former commodity trader turned award-winning filmmaker, who has been making films for the BBC, Channel 4 and the Economist for eight years. Based in San Francisco, California.
The people who have taken part in my films have come from all over the world and from all walks of life; North Korean smugglers, former child soldiers turned hip-hop artists, the Prime Minister of the UK, reformed gangsters in El Salvador, horse whispering prisoners in Arizona, professional gamers and Super Bowl winners. But they all have one thing in common - a story that needs to be told. To do these stories justice I endeavor to make films that are beautifully shot, elegant, high-production-value and get to the heart of the story.
I am experienced in securing difficult access to vulnerable/sensitive contributors, working remotely and being self-sufficient.
I'm a highly skilled self-shooting producer-director experienced in long and short-form digital, broadcast, branded, current affairs and documentary content. I have shot on location in United States, Middle East, Australasia and Europe.
I have a strong focus on maintaining the highest standards of journalism, excellent storytelling and love making engaging, thought-provoking films that are visually stunning.
