About Pic

A self-shooting freelance documentary producer and director based in London, I am passionate about stories that involve real people going through extraordinary times. I am half American and half British and have moved between these two countries throughout my life – this outsider’s perspective is central to my approach to characters and storytelling. My previous work has included edit producing the opening episode of the BAFTA-nominated series two of 24 Hours in A&E for C4 and being one of only five directors to cut episodes for the BAFTA-nominated series Keeping Britain Alive for BBC2. My most recent documentaries include Channel 4’s RTS nominated series SAS: Who Dares Wins, and a number of new projects for Vice media in Los Angeles where I have just spent the past six months working.


I am currently making new series for Channel 4 about Delhi Police.
