An award winning Writer & Director with a background in Art and Film Philosophy, I graduated with a BA Hons from UWE Bristol and in 2014, I graduated from the Met Film School with a Masters in Film Directing.
I have worked on television, corporate videos and feature film productions in different roles – camera operating; editing; and storyboarding. I've directed short films (live action/animation) some of which have won awards and been selected at prestigious film festivals including BAFTA qualifying film festivals. In March 2017, Listen To Me won Shooting People's Film of the Month competition. In 2018, Being Wild a short film made in 60 hours won awards for Best Short Film and Best Director at the Royal Wolf Film Awards in Los Angeles, USA. In March 2018, a web series called Dreaming Whilst Black was released online, I directed the 4th episode titled; "Family Dinners", which went on to win Best UK Series at UK WEB FEST 2018 as well as many others.
In 2019, I brought my award winning screenplay Living in Crime Alley (A Batman Story) to life and it screened at the British Film Institute (BFI). The film was released online in December 2019.
My favourite and influential filmmakers are Christopher Nolan, Billy Wilder, Stanley Kubrick and Alfred Hitchcock. On a personal note, I am a former Starbucks Barista champion.
