About Me

I specialise in sport; particularly football and offer news, documentaries, features, live sport, sporting highlights and branded content.

I have extensive knowledge of sports production having worked in the industry since 1994. I have covered a whole host of sports including football, tennis, rugby, cricket, equestrian, Beach Volleyball and many more. I can be found out on shoots, in the edit suite or in the gallery. I’ve travelled the World meeting all sorts of interesting people doing a job I love.

Shoot Directing

I’m constantly out in the field directing ENG and multi camera shoots. Whether it be filming football matches at the European Championships in Kiev, interviewing Kenny Dalglish on the golf course or trying to find the best location to film shots of Rio De Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer statue; I always strive to be the best at what I do.

Features

I have spent many years creating features for shows such as Football Focus and Premier League World. From the stories inception right through to directing the shoot, interviewing the protagonists, researching the archive, writing the script and producing the edit. I produce features of the highest quality for every single one of my clients.

Documentaries

I co-produced Football’s Greatest 2 for Pitch International. This was broadcast on Sky Sports. I made shows on football legends such as Steven Gerrard, Lionel Messi, Andreas Iniesta, Dennis Bergkamp and Ryan Giggs. A particular highlight was sitting down with Steven Gerrard and interviewing him on his career with Liverpool and England.
