Caught on the wrong side of a military coup at the age of seven, I managed to persuade a soldier to let me live by making him laugh. As a filmmaker, I am committed to telling stories that explore the power of laughter, compassion and what it means to be human.

I have written and directed several short films that have screened at national and international film festivals. My current film, Shadow Man was funded by Film London’s London Calling Plus scheme and completed this autumn.

An MA graduate of The London Film School, I directed theatre prior to film school , receiving The Jerwood Young Director’s Award for my production of ‘Generations OF The Dead’ at The Young Vic Theatre in London.

An experienced Assistant producer in television documentaries and script reader for film, television and theatre companies, I am currently developing several feature projects for film and television.
