Hello.  I'm a 2017 Directing Fiction graduate from The National Film & Television School specialising in character-driven dark comedies and high concepts.  I love taking ordinary characters and dragging them through an unexpected fusion of genres; whether it be crime, sci-fi, fantasy, tragedy or all of the above.

My latest short, Comeback Kid, screened at the BFI London Film Festival and Austin Film Festival in 2017 and my other shorts have premiered at Encounters, LOCO and Sheffield Doc/Fest. 

My promos and commercials have earned me a Gold British Arrow, three Vimeo Staff Picks, a Young Director Award in Cannes, three UK Music Video Award nominations, a BAFTA New Talent Award and two death threats on Youtube. Promonews, the leading UK music video publication, described me as "one of the UK's most talented young music video directors", which was nice.

 

I'm based in London but love working abroad, if only for the aeroplane food.
