Seeking adventure and good stories to tell
I’m a fun and hard working nature geek. Prior to my career in TV, I have worked in academia, zoos, and international biodiversity conservation policy. Starting off in print journalism, I moved to broadcasting and wildlife filmmaking 6 years ago.
I have a broad knowledge of the natural world and how to make different styles of wildlife TV content, both on and off screen.
After a winter sports accident 13 years ago I became a wheelchair user. I’ve never let it hold me back, and I have proved that my disability is no barrier to my life nor my career.
