I'm an English producer/director and video journalist, speak fluent Russian and experience shooting and reporting in Russia, Ukraine, Central Asia, the Philippines and the Middle East.

So far, five films I’ve worked on five award-winning films or programmes that have won prestigious awards, including an Amnesty International Award, a long-list for an Oscar, and an Emmy.

Broadcasters I've worked for include: BBC, HBO, Channel 4, More4, ITN, VICE News, Al Jazeera English, The Guardian and NGOs such as Save the Children, Amnesty International, and I've shot and directed corporate videos for well-known companies like Johnson & Johnson as well as for many smaller production houses and companies.

I have experience on large shoots, including directing a feature travel show for VICE with a crew of eight. But I am also competent working on my own as self-shooting director or as a lighting cameraman, using DSLRs and video cameras such as C300 and XF-305. I own my own DSLR GH4 kit with primes and zooms and full audio gear with Sound Devices mixer and pro mics such as Sennheiser 416 and Sanken Cos 11.

I have a clean driving license and up to date hostile environments training.
