HERE'S A BIT ABOUT ME
VISUALLY DRIVEN PROJECTS WITH STRATEGY, STORY AND STYLE
London based Film + Commercials Director and Photographer with a versatile storytelling style.
Employing strategy, story and style across commercial + brand content, music + comedy, corporate and animation; my creative expertise has led me to create work with Sudocrem, Barbican, Hamptons, The Royal Horticultural Society, Hyundai, Sainsbury’s, MTV, Scope, BT and EY.
Writing and developing a number of short films including PANDEMIC SPY coming later in 2021. Music videos have screened at the London Short Film Festival, Aesthetica Film Festival, York and Detmold International Film Festival.
Working with brands, artists, production companies or agencies, I works quickly in challenging environments as a live action or self-shooting director with playful takes on technology, arts, culture, history, parody set pieces, finding the light in between the darkness and finding any shameless excuse to reference Bruce Springsteen.
