About

I’m a nature filmmaker and photographer from rural Lincolnshire, currently working at the BBC Natural History Unit as a researcher. Also currently venturing into the world of watercolour painting.

After studying Zoology at the University of Sheffield- including a masters project chasing long-tailed tits around the beautiful Peak District- I moved to Bristol to complete an MA in Wildlife Filmmaking at UWE. The curlew and their plight on British farmland became the subject of my thesis film.

I worked as a researcher on the BBC watches for 4 series and now work on a mini-landmark series.
