New York, NY, USA


I'm and independent documentary producer/director, originally from London and now based in NYC. My debut feature 'Comrades' (2008) played in film festivals around the world before being broadcast by the BBC as well as Europe. I'm currently editing my next feature -'The Method and the Madness'- which is being produced by Met Film Production and follows 2 years at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting. I'm also in development on two US projects - one focusing on the American South and race-related issues and another on teenage lovers who have found themselves caught in the nations complex web of sex offender laws. It should be clear from these diverse projects that I'm attracted to wildly different stories! My guiding interest is in strong characters who can carry complex/controversial narratives and my projects tend to be long-term, which allows me to build strong relationships with contributors and shoot in an observational style. As such, I generate a significant amount of footage (the majority of which ends up on the cutting-room floor) which could be used to create shorter pieces. I'm used to a journalistic style, having spent a year working on The Guardian newspaper's newsdesk.
