I’m a producer and director of several award-winning documentaries for major broadcasters including BBC and Netflix. I’m also the former series editor of Unreported World, Channel 4’s critically-acclaimed series and Britain’s longest running foreign affairs strand. A Brit-born Paraguayan, I have a lot of experience reporting on human rights issues and a passion for finding ‘stranger than fiction’ stories from around the world – feel free to drop me a line if you have a good one.
Some highlights from my career: In 2012, I gained access inside the conflict zone of the Nuba mountains in South Sudan and secured evidence which exposed a secret campaign by the Sudanese government to kill thousands of civilians through aerial bombardment and forced starvation. The resulting film “Terror in Sudan” won the Rory Peck award, an award uniquely dedicated to filmmakers working in hostile environments and conflict zones.
In 2014, I shot”Nigeria’s Hidden War” for Channel 4 and PBS (called in the US “The Hunt for Boko Haram) which revealed that in its fight against Boko Haram the government of Nigeria was engaged in a brutal campaign of retaliatory and indiscriminate violence towards civilians. The documentary won several awards, including an Emmy for Best Investigative Journalism.
In 2016, I worked as a producer / director of Episode 4 (Politics) of the Netflix and Channel 4 produced “Trump: An American Dream”, a high profile series exploring four decades of the life of Donald Trump through the stories and perspectives of the people that knew him best.
Currently I’m working as Series Director of a 7-part documentary series to be released in 2019 exploring a fascinating true crime story set in Brazil… stay tuned!
