About me
Award-winning independent filmmaker and co-director of Mountain Way Pictures. Currently working between Bath and London, my narrative filmmaking concerns selfhood, conflicted protagonists, moments of crisis, and strange interplays of time and perception. With Mountain Way, I produce and direct commercial film and video, specialising in work for the Arts, Education and Third sectors. A former winner of the Ch4 RAW CUTS competition and graduate of the the Bristol Old Vic Young Writers Programme, my work has played in competition in UK and EU festivals.
