I started life as a news producer working for the BBC. Over the years this took me around the world covering stories throughout Africa, Asia before settling in The Middle East. One starry night in the middle of the desert I realised that although I loved journalism my passion was in film making. I decided to break free of the constraints of the newsroom and head to New York. I now make social documentaries and short non-fiction films. Life truly is stranger than fiction.
