I have written and directed a number of award-winning narrative and documentary short films, which include Savage, Apparition, and They Never Came Back. 

My most recent narrative short film Savage was screened and nominated for awards at various Oscar and BAFTA-qualifying festivals, including a number of Moviemaker top 50 festivals (AIFVF, Bolton, San Diego, Maryland, Athens, Hainan...) and received a Jury Prize at the 29th Woods Hole International Film Festival and the Best Screenplay Award at the North Dakota Human Rights Film Festival.

My previous work includes Apparition which was screened at 40 international film festivals and received 11 awards. It is currently in worldwide TV distribution on ShortsTV. 

This year I finished They Never Came Back, a made-for-TV half an hour documentary, which was produced with the support of the Slovak Museum of the Holocaust and the Slovak Film Institute.

I also have extensive experience in TV production in the UK, including working as a Producer/Director for ITV2's Hey Tracey.

In 2015 I won the RAD Awards Young Talents Competition and my film opened the ceremony at the Grosvenor in London.

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.
