I’m a UK based Director specialising in highly visual branded content, commercials and high end corporate campaigns. I have worked on films for amongst others – Google, Microsoft, Sony, John Lewis, British Gas and Tesco as well as a series of short form documentaries for charities and NGO’s such as the UN/World Food Programme, VSO and Raleigh International.
Recent work includes a campaign for Canada’s largest energy company – directing 2x broadcast TVC’s, 1xbrand film and 5 mini docs for online. Other work includes a series of films for the international conservation organisation Fauna & Flora International, including a film about mountain gorillas in Rwanda which formed part of David Attenborough’s appeal for the launch UK crowd-funding day.
I aim to make original, truthful films that engage on an emotional level and at the heart of everything I do is a concentration on storytelling. I want to take the viewer on a journey and this approach feeds into every aspect of my work. From script preparation to shot selection and right through to final delivery.
I currently have a feature length drama project in development, Section 47 - based on a true story.
