Currently partnering with Nigel Ashcroft of Green Umbrella productions and we are working on a number of projects at the moment. I have been lucky to have travelled the world many times and been to remote places such as the Virungas for weeks at a time working with Mountain Gorillas and Golden monkeys, but also closer to home in the wilds of Ireland and Scotland. I have a very deep love of all animals and nature and I can let you into a secret, I take twice as long to get to work when it rains picking up snails so no one steps on them ! i also have a 7 month old Puppy called Belle who I adore. I am passionate about conservation. I love story telling and anything to do with natural history is a pleasure. My week points are Budgets and percentages ! I just dont do figures ! but I can tell a story and a great eye for talent.
