About me
I'm the founder & creative director of Don't Look Films - an award-winning creative studio with an in-house music and culture platform called Bonafide Magazine. Bonafide magazine has featured influential acts both in print and online such as Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus, Madlib, MF Doom, New Order, Disclosure, Roisin Murphy, Wu-Tang Clan and Run The Jewels. In 2018 I created + produced an online series called Field Trips in partnership with Shure Mics. The series was shortlisted alongside VICE, Channel 4 and The Economist for a documentary award and went on to win Gold in its category. It then achieved The Best of The Best award at Brand Film Festival, sponsored by Campaign & PR Week. As a music producer, I've made official remixes for many established artists and bands including Depeche Mode, Goldfrapp, Lana Del Rey, Little Dragon, and Roisin Murphy. And my productions have had continued support from BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music.

The premise is simple: Find a unique location and take a music producer on a search for sounds. Equipped with a Shure MV88 MOTIV iOS mic, we invited beatmaker Paul White to one of the UK’s most mysterious locations, The Maunsell Sea Forts. The sounds and rhythms Paul recorded were then converted into audio

    Field Trips Ep 2: Illum SphereCLIENT: Shure AGENCY: Bonafide Content ROLE: Editor (Premiere) / Co-Producer / Colourist (DaVinci Resolve) TX: December 2017 We invite our favourite producers to throw on a warm coat, leave the safety of the studio, and join us for a day of sound hunting on location. For our first installment of Field Trips, we took the beatmaker Paul White to the mysterious Maunsell Sea Forts off the coast of Kent. In Ep 2 we eschewed the serenity of the sea for the crunch, grease and chaos of a day at the bang
