Hello and welcome to my blog!
I am a producer, director and filmmaker. I have worked in the media for over twenty years and have been involved in a range of BBC programmes including, news, current affairs and daytime television. I also run my own production company (Syncopate Media) and have made films that address a wide range of subjects from early onset dementia to the controversial Bedroom Tax. Alongside commissions from the BBC, one of my films was also nominated for a Royal Television Society award.
As an independent filmmaker my films capture moments of activism and resilience. They explore the Black British experience, African-Caribbean migration and national and international political movements.
I am also a postgraduate researcher analysing female voices in documentary film directorial practice through exploration of women’s activism. My research will culminate in an audio-visual production focussing on two groups of Nottinghamshire women - those involved in the Black Lives Matter movement and the women involved in the 1984-1985 miners’ strike. I have a professional and personal interest in exploring the social injustices that are part of many people’s everyday experience. My blog will therefore also serve as a platform for me to articulate my reflections and hopefully start constructive conversations. I feel excited to be able to share my thoughts with you.
