About me
Focused, driven and cine-literate writer/director who enjoys working primarily in narrative fiction but also has experience in the promotional, corporate and music video fields. Having started the company Apple Park Films I began development of my first feature film 'Little Pieces’, which was completed in early 2015. Little Pieces garnered critical acclaim and awards including being nominated for best drama at the UK National Film Awards. I wrote and directed the piece. My latest piece Emotional Motor Unit is hitting the festival circuit and has garnered exceptionally positive reviews. It has won best actor, best actress and best director at the IndieWise Virtual Film Festival, and Best Science Fiction Film at the Golden Gate International Film Festival. It has been a semi-finalist in many other festival placements and has been nominated for more awards than listed. My writing and directing interests are focused in both the thriller and drama genres and my work has been praised for its authentic dialogue and understanding of genre conventions.
