    About me

    Designer for film, TV and theatre.

    In 2016 I designed and art directed my first feature film, Aghori (due for release in 2018). I have subsequently worked on several music videos and film shoots. A music video I art directed for Marc Vedo's "Ride of Your Life" in February has had nearly six million hits on YouTube.

    My approach to design is very story-centric; I like to tightly storyboard moments and design around symbolism and metaphor, boiling a design down to a set of striking, cohesive images. I want to create stories that are haunting and pertinent to the world we live in.

    Prior to working in film I worked as a theatre designer, designing for venues including the Arcola Theatre, The Chickenshed Theatre, Rich Mix, The Vaults, Upstairs at the Gatehouse, The Space, RADA and the Warwick Arts Centre Main Space. I trained in theatre design at RADA, and have also created pieces for events at The National Gallery and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre.
