    About me

    I grew up with a passion for cinema but after joining the film-making society at university and working on a number of projects in a wide range of film production roles, I decided that I wanted to pursue a career in the film industry. In the years since graduation I attended a Summer course with the National Youth Film Academy and have worked on ambitious low-budget films, writing a prize-winning screenplay and directing an award-nominated short film along the way.

    My films tend to be dark in their subject matter, but presented with offbeat humour to make challenging concepts more accessible. I particularly enjoy taking subject matter typically portrayed in a specific genre or format and introducing elements from other genres to create work that may not immediately fall into one specific category, but is all the more entertaining and thought-provoking because for it. I often use supernatural or science-fiction elements as metaphors for psychological, societal, or even political issues that capture my imagination or otherwise matter a great deal to me.

    Additional Information

    I have worked on a number of student short films across the span of my four-year degree, holding the position of Creative Director of my university's filmmaking society for 2013-2014. Since graduating, I have directed five independent films, one of which is a feature currently in post-production. I was also the screenwriter of these projects, and the editor of four of these. I won the 1K Challenge run by the National Youth Film Academy in November 2018 that awarded funding to the winning screenplay towards props, equipment, and locations on the condition that the film could be delivered inside three months. The film, that I also directed, has been officially selected for several international film festivals in four different countries, and won Best Horror Short in the 2019 Summer Alternative Film Festival as well as Best Special Make-up in the 2019 November/December Hollywood Blood Horror Festival.
