About me

 

Filmmaking graduate of Ealing Studios Met Film School, scriptwriting graduate & cinematography postgraduate of Bournemouth University. I am fluent in writing, directing, producing, production management, camera and video editing. I mentor often and have led many teams across various projects. Of all previous recognitions and achievements, Survivor - the world’s first interactive narrative film, inspired by Edward Packard (Choose Your Own Adventure author), remains my strongest having collected attention from various production, marketing and gaming companies as proof of my dynamic and versatile storytelling and filmmaking techniques adding further value to my growing list of contacts and resources along the way. I have 10 years of contacts, experience, commitment, a proud multicultural background from having lived abroad and an expansive education. In the last year I have had several nominations, provided coverage on for the Welsh elections on BBC and commissioned by clients such as JP Morgan & Merlin Entertainment Group. I am flexible to work with and relocation is never an issue.
