About Me

I am a filmmaker and web video producer based in the North East. I help people visualise stories and capture their passions, creativity and ideas. Clients include The BBC, Channel 4, Adobe &  The Discovery Channel.

I have over 15 years experience shooting, editing and producing beautiful films for broadcast, cinema and the web. I don’t work with cumbersome cameras or an imposing crew. I work with you.

I am based in Newcastle where I specialise in documenting arts projects across the North-East. I have worked with The Baltic, Hatton Gallery, The Sage, TWAM, Forma Arts, Durham Brass Festival, Maltings Visual Arts, Northern Print, GIFT, The Bowes Museum and Vane Gallery.

What I Do


I film, edit and produce documentaries, short films, promos & music videos for broadcast, cinema and the web.


I help creatives, arts organisations and businesses create beautiful and engaging video for social media and the web.


I am available to assist production companies and agencies with advanced Adobe Premiere and After Effects skills.


I work with schools, colleges, universities, charities and businesses to help them create their own films and videos.
