    About me

    I have always loved telling stories whether they be short one-liners or extended, staged, dramas. I have been involved in near every element of producing both stage and filmed productions: from writing and directing to stage hand and boom operator, from producing and editing to lighting and costume design. I am more experienced in theatre but look forward to doing more filmed work.

    This love of stories couples well with my love of history, I studied History at the University of Southampton and so any period pieces are of particular interest as they give me a chance to research a new period of history. Historians are the ultimate storytellers, but every once in a while it's nice to tell a crude joke or two.

    When I am not working, I enjoy writing scripts, playing hockey, and challenging myself as a performer to expand my skillset- whether this be through dance, singing, magic, music, or some other random skill. I have since become a mixologist and enjoy making tailored cocktails, have started going to more gigs to expand my (admittedly pretty crap) taste in music and experimenting with Raspberry Pi computer builds.
