About me

I'm a director and filmmaker based in London. I've been working in the advertising and film industries since 2010 - initially working in post production for MPC on feature films such as Life of Pi, Skyfall and Prometheus before moving to tantrum to work in advertising production. As tantrum's directors assistant, I've worked with their entire roster of directors on a number of high-profile ad campaigns including work for Volkswagen, McDonald's, IKEA, Samsung, Dove and Fairy Non Bio. Now as director I've shot a number of adverts and music videos — 'Time's Essence' and 'Where The Light Ends' premiered in The Telegraph and Clash respectively.
