I was working crazy 12hr shifts as a producer on BBC Breakfast TV when I got sent on a mandatory filming course.
It was the video equivalent of army bootcamp, three days of intensive camera training, but I was instantly hooked.

Fast forward a few years and I launched my own filmmaking business. I wanted new creative challenges and more flexibility around my family.
Now I creating videos for charities and NGOs helping them share their messages and inspire people to take positive action.
It all started when I was told to pick up a camera….
