After spending 7-years working in the entertainment industry in Los Angeles, I left LA for London to focus on my career as a producer, developing and producing shorts, television series, and feature projects. Through my corporate and independent work I have production, development, agency, and screenwriting experience. I am represented by Principato-Young and Kaplan/Stahler for screenwriting. I've co-written and developed multiple projects, two of which landed with studio-backed producers. I produced three short films while at the National Film and Television School: The Gentleman Thief (2016) The Wrong End Of The Stick (2016) Selected for competition: Annecy International Animated Film Festival, Zagreb Animafest, Edinburgh International Film Festival Julius (2015) Ask me about my development slate.
