About me
I've over 17 years experience, starting my career as an editor for TV before moving onto directing. I've worked on a wide range of projects from X-Factor content to DRTV/online ads for big & small brands. I can find the beauty in almost anything & I'm easily excitable when presenting a subject or brand in different, interesting ways. With 7 years working in ad agencies, I understand how they work & love collaborating with creative teams. My style is usually led by a strong musical aspect and is presented in a colourful and hyper real aesthetic. I also produce music & film in my spare time.
