About

 

Award-winning creative producer and cross platform storyteller making premium broadcast, commercial and editorial content.

Recent films include the drama-doc feature Jago: A Life Underwater – the life story of an 80-year old Indonesian sea nomad and free-diving hunter, which won numerous festival awards and is currently airing on Netflix. Seven, my first short fiction film (producer), was shot in the Lofoten Islands, 50 miles inside the Arctic Circle. It begins its festival life in 2018.

Recent commercial productions include two short brand films for Facebook, a series of TVCs for Celebrity Cruises and two music video for Top 10 singer/songwriter Nick Mulvey, shot in Sumba, Indonesia and Socotra, Yemen.

My editorial clients include the Sunday Times, Guardian, Nat Geo and Conde Nast Traveller. I write a regular blog for The Guardian telling stories from southeast Asia’s Coral Triangle bioregion – the global epicentre of marine biodiversity. I also set up the Coral Triangle, an online platform funded by the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF), which combines features, photo essays and videos with a travel listing of eco-minded tourism products.

I love to work with forward thinking companies, media brands, NGO’s and social enterprises that want to develop and disseminate powerful visual narratives and cross platform content.

CHOLITAS - the guardian Yolanda La Amarosa flies through the air in a swirl of gold lamé and petticoats, her calves clamped around the throat of her opponent. He spins across the ring to land in a sprawl on the canvas, hand pressed against his lower back, face set in a grimace of agony. Yolanda was one of the first indigenous female wrestlers – or cholita luchadores – in Bolivia. The cholitas have become a symbol of female empowerment in a society dominated by machismo. Multimedia piece that ran in The Guardian alongside a feature I wrote for the Saturday magazine.
