Hello! I'm a London-based editor and have been making stories for nearly 20 years. I have recently completed a 4-part documentary series for Netflix, due for release later this year.
As a documentary editor, I tend to seek out projects about the humans and wildlife that make our planet extraordinary. I'm also drawn to stories that have a science or investigative element to them. As a violinist, I really enjoy working with music. I relish the daily challenge of finding the perfect blend of sound, music and actuality to evoke emotion.
Back in 2006, I joined the team that launched the Al Jazeera English Channel in Qatar, an experience that would inspire me to pursue documentary-making. From there I went on to work with the major UK broadcasters and production companies, winning a National Headliner Award for the documentary Greenland: Secrets in the Ice in 2013 and going on to edit award-winning documentaries in 2018-2019.
More recently, I was lead editor on The Parkinson's Drug Trial: A Miracle Cure? (BBC2) which won the Grierson Award for Best Science Documentary in 2019. Prior to this, I was lead editor on Equator from the Air (Dragonfly/BBC2), in which Gordon Buchanan makes an epic 25,000-mile journey around the centre of the world. A few other notable projects include the RTS-nominated Extraordinary Rituals (BBC Studios/BBC2), Pompeii (National Geographic), and one particular highlight - working with the legendary Walter Murch on the Grierson and BIFA-nominated feature documentary, COUP 53, which had its European premiere at the BFI London Film Festival.
