BIO

I have written and directed a number of narrative shorts including my most recent film Savage, which is currently on a successful run on the festival circuit, including screenings at a number of US Oscar-qualifying and Moviemaker Top 50 film festivals (San Diego IFF, Maryland IFF, Athens AVIFF). Despite being made completely independently, Savage has been presented alongside shorts and features which have received awards at Cannes, Locarno, Venice, or Toronto. 

My previous work includes Apparition (2016), which was screened at 40 international film festivals across all continents and received 11 awards. It is currently in worldwide TV distribution on ShortsTV. 

In 2015, an advertisement I developed and directed with Casual Films in London won the nationwide RAD Awards Young Talents Competition and opened their award ceremony at the Grosvenor.

For the last three years I have also worked in various roles on projects for leading UK TV channels including the BBC, Channel 4, ITV, and MTV. I recently finished working as Shooting Assistant Producer and Editor on an ITV show called Hey Tracey.

I studied Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the University of Oxford, and Film Directing at the École Internationale de Création Audiovisuelle et de Réalisation in Paris.

Currently I live in London and I am working on my first feature length documentary.
