I am an award-winning film and music video director. Finding my beginnings as an editor, and after training as an actor for three years, I progressed to directing, writing and producing short films & music videos. My work has been official selections at film festivals around the world, in countries such as the USA, Italy, Germany and Bosnia & Herzegovina, being nominated for multiple awards, with a win coming in the form of a Special Mention prize at the 2017 Winchester Short Film Festival. I've also directed music videos for bands and artists such as Chemtrails, Good Habits, LIO, Valley Road & David Walker.
My next short film Tatev, will premiere in 2020.
I have also worked in other creative mediums, most recently as cinematographer for an upcoming installation entitled Vessels by artist R.M. Templeton and as co-director for an original theatre production, The Sylvia Swing, which premiered on 2nd November, 2019 at the Studio Theatre - York Theatre Royal.
