About me

Since graduating from Newcastle University in 2012, with a degree in fine art & drama, I have worked as a freelance filmmaker for brands, agencies and production companies. Over my career, I have developed a wide range of skills; writing, producing, shooting, directing and editing award-winning commercial content for global brands. Having worked with some of the worlds biggest names in Sport, Music, Film, Fashion & Social Media, I am extremely confident directing high profile individuals. I always try to create a fun, relaxed & professional working environment on set, enabling me to get great performances out of even the most camera shy individuals. I love working on projects with heart and humor, especially those based around families and children as I feel my true strength is working with kids. I aim to tell engaging stories that both entertain and inspire because great stories stay with us, long after the credits roll.
