A former print journalist, Dave started at Granada. As a director he put Gordon Ramsay on TV in the seminal C4 series Boiling Point, then made several films including the critically-acclaimed Cutting Edge: BrianÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Story (Nominated 2001 RTS Best Doc). As an Exec Producer he oversaw the first ever rig series: The Family, the feature length doc Breaking Up With the JonesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s (both BAFTA nominated) and Emmy-winning factual drama Forgiven. He was head of docs at betty and ran the company for a while before returning to directing. His BBC series The Year The Town Hall Shrank won the 2013 Grierson Best Documentary Series with Time Out likening it to Ã¢â‚¬ËœThe WireÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.
Dave is married with 3 children.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m an award-winning director with more than twenty years experience in TV. My appetite is for creative risk, to push the documentary form, to surprise and re-invent the genre. As well as Broadcast television, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m keen to explore making documentary films for new platforms.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m currently developing a drama-documentary with C4 and a US-based Feature Documentary.
