Home About Documentaries NGO Video Journalism Contact info

I'm a Rory Peck Award-nominated producer/director and video journalist with experience shooting and reporting in Africa, the Middle East and the UK. After studying journalism at the Press Association I moved to West Africa, working from Liberia, Guinea and Ivory Coast for Reuters and Al Jazeera.

I reported on the 2010 election crisis in Guinea for two months - covering 4000km on a small motorbike. In 2011, I focused on Libya, producing news for the wires and international broadcasters and documentaries for Al Jazeera.

My Al Jazeera Witness film Holding the Line was shortlisted for the Grierson Awards (Best Newcomer) and the One World Media Awards and nominated for the Rory Peck Awards 2012 (Best Feature).

I have since filmed projects in Turkey, Syria, Kenya, Somalia, Rwanda and the UK. I shoot on a wide range of cameras, including full HD broadcast ENG cameras (Sony pmw-500) Cinema cameras (Canon c300) pro camcorders (Canon xf305 etc) and DSLRs (Canon 5dmark3, Panasonic gh3). Regular clients include Al Jazeera English, Channel 4, The Guardian, TIME, VOA, CNN, AP, Reuters, UNICEF, UNHCR and Human Rights Watch.

I have a clean driving license and up to date hostile environments training.
