About me
I’m a director / editor, based in London, working across documentary, fiction & virtual reality. My films have been featured on National Geographic, NOWNESS and Vimeo Staff Picks, and have received 10+ official selections at Oscar and BAFTA qualifying festivals across the world. My short documentary "War and Cheese" was longlisted for the 2017 BAFTA Short Film Award. Brands I've created work for include Google, Phillips and Cornerstone. I’m a member of BAFTA Crew x BFI Network, a development initiative set up by the UK’s leading film bodies, and in 2017 I took part in a monitorship scheme with Werner Herzog, as part of an initiative he led in Cuba.
