About me

Put simply I'm a moving image creative and creator. I build and lead creative production teams as a producer and creative director, as well as a hands-on filmmaker throughout the production process; writing, directing, shooting and editing. I am an independent video producer and I mostly work on commercial, corporate and documentary projects. I have worked in and around creative agencies for my whole career since starting out as a freelancer in 2007, then onto co-running the boutique creative shop Creative Cherry from 2011 - 2015. Cherry was acquired by London’s leading creative-tech agency Manifesto Digital early in 2016, where I spent three years leading the motion content offering. I've had the opportunity to work on some wonderful projects in collaboration with wonderful people, producing work I'm very proud of. Work that has won many awards including The Drum RAR award for Digital Animation, the Acquia Engage award for digital campaign for Parkinson's UK and a Telly Award for Unicef - A Child's Tale.
