Biography

I have been a print, radio and television journalist. I’ve also been a documentary producer; programme commissioner; ran a wildlife film making company and am now an Executive Producer looking after consumer and current affairs shows on ITV. These include Tonight; The Martin Lewis Money Show; and Real Stories.I was involved in the investigative programme on Jimmy Saville. One of my 2015 highlights was School Swap – a two part series looking at education in Britain by ‘swapping’ kids from state and private schools. In my spare time I cycle. And when I don’t have time to do that – I ride my bike!
