I’m an award-winning documentary maker, sound composer, podcast producer and journalist based in London.
Which basically means I tell stories.
Really good stories.
Making documentaries has granted me unprecedented access into the deepest, darkest depths of human beings and their lives.
It has taken me across continents to some of the most incredible and frankly, some of the most fucked up places in the world.
Its a real privilege; sitting down with a stranger and speaking until we are no longer strangers.
Holding a space for someone into which they can just talk; freely, openly.
And be heard.
Because some stories cannot be left untold.
And the truth is, I find human beings more fascinating, more exciting, more fulfilling than anything else on the planet and I have been touched, altered, inspired and broken by a hell of a lot of them.
So I decided to share some of those stories with you.
In the hope it might leave you altered too.
