About me
Freelance Director obsessed with Sport and constantly making content. I am passionate about story-telling and aim to deliver innovative content for brands. I have created work for FIFA, Visa, Nike, Adidas and Pepsi to name but a few. Within my work I have worked as both a director and a creative on a number of projects, helping to take them from development, including creative ideation, all the way through to delivery. My role has seen me work with some of the world's biggest footballing stars and travel the world creating content in multiple languages. Although primarily sports based a lot of my work focuses on the characters at the heart of the story and how their journey and experiences have shaped them as a person first and an athlete second.

    Over the course of 3 months I oversaw the creation of 15 short branded docs, in 11 different languages, with some of the worlds biggest female footballers, telling their stories ahead of the World Cup. Starting with the initial creative development of what each film would be, I directed 10 of the films plus oversaw the creation of 5 other films, for which I had to send out other directors to work on my brief. These additional 5 films would then require me to work as creative director and post director in order to get a uniform set of assets. Additionally each film came with an absolute monster number of deliverables… each film had a 15 second and a 6 second version for socials and YouTube bumpers, as well as a completely separate Visa payment film for each player. After completing the Visa project I directed a Women's World Cup Daily - a daily YouTube show covering the Women's World Cup '19 in France.
