About me

I'm a film director/videographer and consider myself both technical and creative having trained at Drama Centre London and Met Film School. I love working with and developing actors/characters but I also love to work with clients to develop their ideas from script to screen. I believe that liaising with the whole production team is of great benefit to any organisation. I also greatly enjoy composing music and performing live, singing and playing keys in various international gigs, festivals and other unique arts venues.
