Creative & Director

  • Location: London, UK
  • Career stage: Expert
  • Freelancer: Available

I am a twice BAFTA nominated, multi award winning Creative & Director born in Canada but based in London. Specialising in high impact visual storytelling, my background as an illustrator and designer allows me to stamp each project with a strong aesthetic identity, while my experience as writer, director and producer grounds my ideas in the reality of what works on screen.

With clients including Oxford Film & television, BBC, Nickelodean, Lego and Nission, my portfolio spans motion graphics, live action, VR and post production for broadcast, advertising and online.

Ultimately, I believe that everything has a story – it’s how you tell it that makes the difference. Who is the story for? Who is the storyteller? Where does it start and how does it unfold? Stories aren’t usually linear – so let’s follow a thread and see where it takes us, then let your imagination (and mine) take hold.
