Educated and working since 2014, achieving a B.A. (with Honours) in Film from UWS.

Passionate about film, the evolving industry and its effects of people, I wish to leave my mark, believing there is a major gap issue that needs addressed.

As a filmmaker, I’m very open-minded, understanding and respectful of the collaborative filmmaking process, whilst applying my eccentric personality to the work.

In 2016, I have been part of a collection of short film project, after working on two independent features, and touring with a small theatre company around the UK as well as successfully working with more corporate clients.

Reccently I earned a M.F.A. in Advanced Film Practice from Screen Academy Scotland, where I wrote and directed my first fully funded short film "Sheltered", whilst assisting with other MA short films. 

"Sheltered" is currently on festival run, having shown locally and internationally during its short run thus far.

Currently I’m on my first co-writing venture with two MA Screenwiring graduates and currently one on my own.

My approach of filmmaking consists of a distinctive blend of profound subject matter, equal representation and unrestricted technique.
