About me

I have been writing and directing films for the last six years, several of which have become official selections at film festivals in Florida, Iași, the East Midlands, and closer to home in Manchester. In 2016, The Telegraph featured one of several music videos I directed for musician Blair Dunlop, ahead of the release of his album, Gilded. My goal is to direct feature films for cinema release and start my own production company.
