About me
A British/ Swedish filmmaker, my next short Daughter, in development for a feature film is currently on the festival circuit and recently won Best UK Film at Bolton Film Festival and was also nominated for Best Cinematography at Underwire Festival (BAFTA recognised).. The film has Gizmo Films (Funny Cow) as Executive Producers and Julia Verdin (Merchant Of Venice- Al Pacino) on board as a Producer. I have directed a number of different promos including work for Puma, Change Incorporated (VICE), Exosuit, Roo Panes, International Justice Mission and Idea Drop. I was selected as the Film Creative for the 2018-2019 Emerging Creatives Programme with the Hospital Club London. My short film Slaved in 2016 won the Unchosen Short Film Competition (patrons- Ken Loach, Nick Broomfield) and screened at Encounters Film Festival in 2018. My other short All’s Well won best film at the Just Film Awards and Audience Choice Award at the Veterans Film Festival in 2015. It screened at the East End Film Festival in June 2016. I was formally trained in Acting at Drama Centre- Central St Martins. After graduating I acted in feature films, high profile music videos, award winning short films and classical theatre productions. I am represented by Curtis Brown. I read English Literature and Fine Art at Newcastle University where my graduate art film was screened at the Northern Film Festival. Prior to University I gained an Associate Producer credit on the feature The Least Among You (2009) starring Oscar winner Louis Gossett Jr. BFI Network and BAFTA Crew for 2019/2020 and a member of the Young Vic Directors Scheme.
