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 PD and DV director and some recent credits include directing BBC Education's 'Bilingual Babies' series and DV directing on a Channel 4 Dispatches documentary Safe at Last: Inside the Refuge. I'm passionate about observational documentary making and bringing out the best in contributors to tell a relatable story. 

 

My first feature doc Faith and Branko premiered at Sheffield Doc Fest 2020 and is screening at Hot Docs 2021 among other festivals. This intimate obs doc charts the romantic and creative relationship between married musicians Faith and Branko. 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.
