• I produced the BBC’s first-ever independent commission
  • My own production company Principal Films forged one of the first UK co-production relationship with Discovery Networks in the mid-1990s. By 2003, Principal was a Top 25 Indie with a permanent and freelance team of 50.
  • In spring 2005, Principal merged into Darlow Smithson Productions where I spent 18 months as Head of Documentaries.
  • 2009 I became Head of Factual at Parthenon Entertainment (now Sky Vision), overseeing all original factual production and development, helping establish Parthenon as a major producer, which precipitated its take-over in 2012 by BSkyB.
  • 2012 and 2015 I was contracted to make films for Nutopia, Back2Back, Double Act and IWC Media.
  • Since September 2015, I’ve been Executive, Specialist Factual at Pulse Films, working beside MD Roy Ackerman to reboot the company’s non-scripted division.


I’m proud of (nearly) everything I’ve made.

My ambition is the same as it’s always been: to be involved in telling great stories.
