I'm an Irish Shooting Director based in London. I have an MA in Documentary Directing from the National Film and Television School (NFTS) and a background in Visual Anthropology.

I work as a broadcast PD and DV director - my most recent credits were as a PD for BBC Education's 'Bilingual Babies' and as a DV director on a Channel 4 Dispatches documentary Safe at Last: Inside the Refuge.


My first feature documentary Faith and Branko is premiering at Sheffield Doc Fest 2020. This film is a Serbia-UK co-production and we hope to screen "Faith and Branko" at more festivals worldwide.

In 2017 I shot/directed a documentary called Accents Speak Louder than Words for BBC4 and the British Film Institute (BFI), which was housed by Wingspan Productions. This film follows a Polish woman who decides to offset discrimination by taking accent training classes. BBC Stories released a cut-down which has received 460K views so far.


My NFTS grad film Professional Foreigner which is about foreign entertainers working in Mumbai premiered at Sheffield Doc Fest '17.

I was selected as a member of BFI X BAFTA Crew 2019, in the upcoming directors category.
