After studying theatre and film in Glasgow, I started making films for Channel 4, working with poets and performers including John Hegley, Akram Khan, Frank Chickens, Patience Agbabi and others. I was soon drawn towards documentary and have gone on to make films in the UK and around the world for a range of broadcasters, NGOs, public organisations and educational resources. Most recently I have made two feature documentaries which have shown at festivals and won prizes around the world.


I work collaboratively with the people I film and have also worked as a tutor and facilitator with different groups of people, including women and young people in the criminal justice system, young adults with learning disabilities and first time deaf filmmakers.


I have also spoken at a number of events about my work, including a presentation about film and social change at the UN in New York. More recently I have been invited to speak at a number of events linked to our social impact campaign for Casablanca Calling.
