HERE'S A BIT ABOUT ME
LONDON BASED FILM + COMMERCIALS DIRECTOR AND PHOTOGRAPHER CREATING SMART, SOULFUL, VISUALLY DRIVEN STORIES
As a live action or self-shooting director, I work quickly in challenging environments with brands, artists, production companies or agencies, employing strategy, story and style across diverse projects like commercial, brand, music, comedy, corporate and animation. With playful takes on technology, arts, culture, history, parody set pieces, finding the light in between the darkness and finding any excuse to reference Bruce Springsteen.
I wrote and directed short comedy film Pandemic Spy (Paris Short Film Festival, Golden Nugget International Film Festival, OTB Film Awards, Berlin Flash Film Festival, AltFF Alternative Film Festival), Elephant in the Womb and Picturebook Romance. My music videos for Cornershop, Maroon Town and Punkture Sluts have been screened at the London Short Film Festival, Aesthetica Film Festival, York and the Detmold International Film Festival, Germany.
