Creative Director at Shakehaus by day, Film Writer, Director & Editor at night. I am an imaginative mind who leads the creative process from ideation to completion. I love strong storytelling and thrive on helping companies of all sizes to communicate their brand message in original and entertaining ways.

This is why I've co-founded Shakehaus, a video advertising and production company in Edinburgh, Scotland.

I've worked as a corporate filmmaker in France, for Events, Retailers, Public Transport Services & Manufacturers, with a Filmmaking Professional Bachelor degree and Communication studies in my pockets.

I attended and graduated from a MA Film (Screen Academy Scotland) to take a step further toward creative video advertising/fiction and gained more production experience at the highest level, on the sets of big budget BBC dramas and several high-end commercials.

I'm always looking for collaborations and take on freelance jobs as a writer, director and editor.
