What are the main influences and inspirations behind your work?
I’m influenced by things around me, and often these aren’t directly from nature. I love taking inspiration for storylines from music, video games and books.
Of course there are the classic nature documentaries such as Planet Earth, but in my day-to-day work, I often go to non-nature sources for inspiration and I often find these to be the most useful for moving storylines. I am a big fan of country music, and you would be shocked how many country song lyrics provide the perfect narration to almost all the stories I find!
What recent project/piece of work at the BBC Natural History Unit are you most proud of?
I have only worked on one show so far at the Natural History Unit, called ASIA which is a super-landmark series due to air in 2024. These shows take a long time to produce and I have only worked on this one so far, which I guess makes it my favourite!
