Table Tennis Championships - ITV4
XCAT Powerboat Racing
- Host Feed

Last year I joined a marvellous team from Sunset + Vine / APP to direct the live coverage of this spectacular sport. With live onboard cameras and cineflex in helicopters and boats we've covered every race from Portugal to Australia. You can see the highlights here.

Rendezvous with Zienab Badawi - BBC

I set up and directed 12 episodes of this chat show from Arusha in Tanzania and Marrakesh, Morocco.  Sourcing locations, crews and equipment locally proved particularly challenging, especially in Tanzania.

Renegade Economist - Pilot

An incrediably talented team of friends helped turn this idea of Ross and Megan Ashcroft's into a reality.  Now in the process of finding a broadcaster. Check out the pilot here.

Davos Today - Reuters

Every January I make my way up the Swiss mountains to the World Economic Forum in Davos to direct the official breakfast show produced by Reuters. Featuring a guest list made up of Presidents, Prime Ministers and the CEOs of the world's biggest companies.

Directing the live coverage of this fast paced sport on ITV4 for Artifex Media.  It may only be a small table but we used 8 cameras to cover every inch of the excitement.

Goodwood Revival and Festival of Speed - ITV

After working in various roles on the F1 Grand Prix over 11 seasons, Motorsport has become one of my specialities and I always look forward to the Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Revival each year as well as working on the Blancpain GT series.

Keiser Report - Russia Today

After making 8 documentaries for AlJazeera with Max Keiser then 'The Oracle' for BBC World News, I now direct, edit and deliver 3 Keiser Reports a week to Russia Today on a very tight budget. 

Spa 24 Hour Race - Host Feed

Directing the race coverage of this classic 24 hour endurance race for global broadcast with 15 track cameras, 2 RF cams (one on a segway) and 6 on-board cameras feeds.

ITN News Channel, ITV Morning News . . .

I started out directing the ITV Morning News in 1997 and went on to work across all of ITN's output as a freelancer for the next 10 years.

Other programmes I've directed include: Election 2010/15 - Brighton (BBC), Global Players (CNBC), Akthar min Rai (AlJazeera Arabic), Live links (Nickelodeon), Al Khalifa News, Abu Dhabi News . . .  I have also directed and produced over 200 short films for my production company, Parsley Productions.
