About me
I write, direct and edit films for brands. Over the last 10 years, I've been lucky enough to work with some of the most amazing agencies, brands, broadcasters and clients in the industry. I even managed to pick up a couple of awards along the way. I’m happiest when working from brief to delivery. I’m passionate about what I do and would love to show you my work sometime.

  • Thorntons Easter Campaign
    Thorntons Easter CampaignNothing says I love you like a handmade, limited edition, ginormous easter egg and I was lucky enough to direct a film for its launch. Shot on location in the Thorntons R&D kitchen, surrounded by molten chocolate. It's a tough life...
  • Cancer Research UK
    Cancer Research UKA third of all of CRUK's funding comes from legacy gifts. We were challenged with making a film that demonstrates the importance of this revenue stream and encourages others to leave the charity a gift in their will. I directed this spot featuring the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
  • Plusnet BFI Sponsorship Campaign
    Plusnet BFI Sponsorship CampaignPlusnet needed a film to promote their partnership with the BFI. Rather than going down the more obvious, 'our broadband is great for streaming route' we pitched a spot that showed both Plusnet's understanding of their audience and their passion for film. We showed that whilst streaming is great, sometimes you can't beat the real thing.
  • Halfords Sponsorship Idents
    Halfords Sponsorship IdentsHalfords were looking for a series of idents to tie their offering to the Channel 4 weather. I directed and edited multiple spots (as part of Karmarama's 'Ready for Anything' campaign) that showcased their products in relatable scenarios perfect for any weather condition.

  • Making of Us
    Making of UsIntroducing a film created not because a brand asked us to, but because many amazing people wanted to. Proof that even apart, we’re in this together. A truly colloborative effort, a few key crew found through The Dots, all done for nothing more than promises for stiff drinks when this is all over ...

  • Send chocolate packing.  Dechox!
    Send chocolate packing. Dechox!Dechox is a British Heart Foundation campaign that asks people to give up chocolate for a month, for charity. We encouraged them to take a more irreverent approach to the campaign, with a a fun twist on the proposition "send chocolate packing for charity". What happens when you give up chocolate for a month? it goes on holiday of course! We chose this fun animation approach to really stand out in what is usually a rather worthy category.
