With twenty years’ experience of working in moving image, I’ve been a news reporter, TV producer and am now a freelance documentary director/producer. My aim is to tell moving true stories through powerful visual images, using sumptuous cinematography. As a former BBC newshound with a strong grounding in documentary journalism, I also have a background in fine art, sculpture and photography. I am passionate about making powerful, high-quality factual films.
Cambridge-educated, I’m also a University Lecturer in Media Arts. When not making documentaries, I spend time in my sculpture studio, tinkering around in scrap metal yards and rooting out interestingly-shaped junk.
My latest film about 82 year old queen of Cornish punk, 'Viva. Punk Rebel, 82' had its world premier in Sydney, Australia and has won four awards including selections for the Aesthetica Short Film Festival 2014, Lunafest 2014 and San Francisco International Short Film Festival 2014.
We're delighted that 'Beneath 360' won the coveted judges' prize for Creative Craft in the 2013 Media Innovation Awards.
Check out my documentary short, Ray: A Life Underwater on my featured videos. I directed and produced this tale about a former commercial diver and his amazing treasure trove of marine salvage.
