I’m a Director and Director of Photography based in London, UK and the Midlands. I’ve been in the industry for 8 years working first as assistants on feature films and music videos, before becoming a creative lead.

I’ve shot all around the UK and internationally in Asia, Africa and the US: from studio soundstages to Masai villages; gene sequencing laboratories to a tug boat on the Thames. Take a look at some of my projects in the Work section of the website. I can work on projects from their inception – developing the creative idea, budgeting, hiring crew – or just jump in as a Director, DOP or Camera Op alongside an existing team.

When it comes to post, I’ve got some established go-to editors, sound designers and colourists on speed-dial, but I’ve also spent long hours in Premiere and After Effects myself – helpful for directing, or, for personally delivering a range of outputs from cinema screens to social media stories.

My films have screened at London Short Film Festival, Aesthetica Film Festival, and the BFI Flare Industry Selection, amongst others. In the museums and heritage sector, I’ve worked on films for the British Museum, Wellcome Trust, Science Museum, National Maritime Museum, National Museum of Scotland, National Trust and others. I’ve been a creator for THEA winning exhibitions.
