    About me

    I work in feature film production and a writer of film, TV and content. Flickers of the Future 2020 shortlisted.

    I moved to London in 2015 after realising my master's in Biomechanics was more likely to be a fabulously bland piece of art on the wall, rather than get me a job. I didn't realise that all it takes to get started in the film industry is adoration for film, addiction to the pursuit and a drive to progress without having any money for 5 years. Thankfully, I had all those traits and a friend coaxed me down to London to pursue the dream job career.

    Over four years later, I've worked in post-, production and development for film, TV, commercials, music videos and corporate. I work mostly in production, but after a couple internships, I realised that I need to work in story. I began using work as film school and learning the craft of screenwriting in my free time.

    I am still torn between production/development and writing myself, so would love to do both (dreaming big). I love reading stories, recognising what works and what doesn't, trying to figure out why. I enjoy the production process, so currently on the Screenskills Production Scheme and also helping friends with their projects as the producer.

    But I have 3700 ideas that I need to get out my head to create room to ingest more film and TV. I have feature, TV, web and short scripts that I've finished and/or am working on. I love almost all genres so want to work in a breadth of styles. Be it my own work or aiding others.

    I’ve developed ideas, created pitches/treatments, personal assisted, provided coverage, worked on pre-production documents, researched extensively and worked on set for many productions. Due to working from post through to (some) distribution, I've gained a good overview of the whole process and now looking for the best way to use my skills and knowledge to create lasting art.
