I started my career in documentaries, working my way up from researcher to AP and then producer/director making access-based series for the BBC Documentaries department. Highlights included a backstage pass to the Atlanta Olympics, time in Uganda for the Asian programme unit, a stint with the Royal Marines and a BAFTA nomination for Hotel, about the Adelphi in Liverpool.
From documentaries I spent time in drama and then returned to non-fiction working as a series producer/director and successful developer on a broad range of documentaries, specialist factual, natural history, features and popular factual series and specials for BBC1, BBC2, ITV, Channel 4, National Geographic and Discovery. I’ve lived and worked in New York and Washington, D.C. and have held senior business wining positions at Tiger Aspect, Mentorn Media, Renegade, Tigress Productions and 360 Productions (now Rare TV) – where I oversaw the rapid growth of the company, winning awards and doubling the turnover in less than 2 years.
I’ve joined Icon Films from blue chip natural history producer Red Rock Films in Washington D.C. where I had a dual role both executive producing and developing new series and specials – including the company’s first natural history series for Netflix.
