Formerly the Multimedia Editor at HuffPost, I moved to Colombia to pursue freelance projects, and I covered social and environmental justice all across the country, for Al Jazeera, Washington Post, Greenpeace, the BBC and more. I was recently awarded an O1 Extraordinary Ability visa to move to the US, and I am now based in LA, where I am working at a documentary production company. I have previously been awarded grants to film and produce experimental 360 videos to tell climate change stories, and I have training in - and experience of - reporting from hostile environments. I am currently working on a short doc for First Look Media, filming in a prison; an investigative feature-length doc filming in LA; and a number of short news packages for Deutsche Welle, the BBC and Al Jazeera. I am represented by UTA and split my time between LA, London and Colombia.

    Lucy worked incredibly hard to ensure the success of this very challenging project. Sourcing capable filmmakers in 12 remote locations of the world is no easy task. She managed a tight budget impeccably, worked through any unforeseen issues, and ensured the delivery of excellent footage from each filmmaker. Highly recommend working with Lucy!

    Lucy was great to work with - getting everything we needed, being communicative, and sending deliverables on time.
