Comedy. Drama. Family. Twice-nominated BAFTA director.
My career began as a runner, then worked my way up the ranks to 1st AD. A couple of short films later I got a breakthrough directing gig on Glan Hafren, a Welsh language medical series fondly known as ‘Casualty on speed’. This led to work on Hollyoaks, The Bill and the final series of Dangerfield with Nigel Havers and Idris Elba.
Then came many primetime TV dramas including Hope and Glory (Sir Lenny Henry), A&E (Martin Shaw), two period-drama singles for Julian Fellowes Investigates a Most Mysterious Murder and Richard Herring’s one-off comedy drama, You Can Choose Your Friends… I was also lead director on three seasons of the hugely successful family dramas The Story of Tracy Beaker, The Revenge Files of Alistair Fury, and the award winning adaptation of Jacqueline Wilson’s Hetty Feather. I have recently finished The Worst Witch (season finale) which was in the top 10 on iPlayer every week, and will air on Netflix later this year.
As voice director I’ve worked on several video games including Sacred 3, RuneScape and Wonderbook: Book of Potions, and animated shorts for the National Trust.
Whether jumping in the sea on New Year’s Day, swimming 10k down the River Jubilee (yesss cold) or cycling anywhere in London, I love a challenge … and challenging material.
