David Fuller is a journalist, reporter, filmmaker, writer, and co-founder of Rebel Wisdom.
About: I am a journalist and the founder of the Rebel Wisdom media platform. I’ve produced and directed films about Syrian refugees, Russian prostitutes, Cuban defectors, psychedelics, hip hop stars and gangsters, mainly for Channel 4 and the BBC. Rebel Wisdom is my latest project to bring a philosophical and spiritual depth to the cultural conversation that the mainstream media is unable to provide. I have covered the existential crisis of modernity, the problems of sensemaking and the deeper threads of the culture war.
I began at the BBC two decades ago, then worked for Channel 4 News for many years as a producer and cameraman/editor. I worked as a foreign producer during the height of the Arab Spring, in Egypt, Libya, Bahrain and elsewhere. I was the first to cover the revival of psychedelic therapy in 2008. My documentary and news work has been nominated for several awards including the Royal Television Society (RTS) Independent Award. I have trained in counselling, transformational work and facilitation. I’m available for consultation and counselling for a range of different purposes, both personal and professional, for example to coach a creative project.
