I'm one part of a north west based filmmaking and screenwriting duo, PARALLEL MADNESS, with Varun Raman.




2017 saw our first film on the festival circuit, TRANSMISSION, shot on 35mm, selected for the Oscar-qualifying Rhode Island Film Festival, as well as top genre festivals including Fantasia, Brussels IFF and L'Étrange. The film was accepted into over 90 festivals worldwide and won 13 awards along the way.
