Having initially studied animation and media, Jan quickly developed a passion for documentary, and forged a career path working as a producer and documentary director for TV companies such as Brook Lapping, Media Trust and Fulcrum, creating content for C4, VBS, Current and Five amongst others. As a Producer/Director, he has made two different series for the C4 3MW strand (Art Savant & 3 minutes to save the World), series directed the Gumball Rally, self-shot and edited a number of international documentaries for cable, including the Award winning Burj Birdmen for Current TV.

Much of Jan's work in the documentary field has been developing relationships in the Third sector - often working with young people or people with disabilities. Having made hundreds of promotional films for charities such as Barnardos, The Prince's Trust & Ambitious about Autism, Jan has developed a trustworthy reputation, and a reliable track record when working in sensitive situations. Jan currently sits on the Sheffield Documentary Festival Advisory Board, and is currently developing factual projects that look to harness the changing media landscape, and engage the next generation of media consumers through multi-platform delivery.
