I am a documentary shooting Producer / Director with a passion for observational and character led films..
Having started out working for the Berlin Film Festival and in fiction films, I made the move across to documentary. My work focuses on gender, politics and mental health, seeking understanding where it is often overlooked. Across my TV and film work I've sat down for cups of tea with drag kings, military commanders, radical feminists, incels and conspiracy theorists. I love making films that come from a position of genuine inquisitiveness, free from judgement and developed with kindness and journalistic rigour.
Day to day I work as a producer on documentaries for broadcasters and streamers. Programmes I've worked on include The Cancer Vaccine (Nat Geo), Laura Whitmore Investigates: Incels (ITV), Trump: The Comeback? (BBC) and the BAFTA nominated Jeremy Kyle: Death on Daytime (C4).
Outside of TV, I have directed a number of independent documentaries. My short films have screened at Underwire, Manchester Film Festival and Soho Film Festival, and appeared on the Huffington Post and Girls in Film. In 2019 I received a John Brabourne Award for emerging talent in film and the same year - together with my co-director - won the Edinburgh Film Festival's Works in Progress Award for our feature documentary Women Behind the Wheel. In August 2022 the documentary premiered at Edinburgh International Film Festival, with two sold out screenings. It subsequently screened in cinemas across the UK, including two BAFTA screenings.
I was selected as part of the 2023 BIFA Springboard cohort, a development scheme for first time feature filmmakers, and I was recently made a BAFTA Connect member.
I speak English and German.
