Marine & Natural History Film Tutor
Following my Zoology degree at Manchester University, I made my first documentary in the Himalayas, then soon after started work as a researcher at the BBC Natural History Unit. I moved to Scorer Associates as an assistant producer where I worked on a number of blue-chip wildlife documentaries for the BBC and Discovery, including big cats, elephants and the first ever series about the natural and human history of Congo. Through this work, I became a specialist in central Africa, chimpanzees, gorillas and ape cultures. I have also worked extensively as a development producer on series for BBC, Discovery, PBS and others. I have produced films and online content for WWF: creating live story, image and data streams from people working on the frontlines of conservation for WWF Life. I've also produced films for NGOs such as rainforest charity Cool Earth and Stand Up for Nature - an incredible bicycle-cinema project showing local conservation films to remote communities in Kenya. And in my first foray into story-telling with still images, I produced the Endangered book with Tim Flach.
