About me

A versatile and passionate filmmaker with a wealth of experience working across a varied range of brands. Devoted to creating compelling stories with energy, heart and soul. Always striving to capture something beautiful that enchants, connects and entertains. Exhibits alarming (possibly annoying) levels of positivity, dedication and over-excitement to every aspect of the project. Whether it’s capturing a shot in the snowy hills of Martha’s Vineyard, orchestrating drones over the skies of Tel Aviv or trying to keep up with a professional climber on the slopes of the Italian Dolomites. Extensive experience helming product-focused, lifestyle-focused and brand-focused commercial productions, that seek to generate both awareness and sales. Buckets full of enthusiasm and endeavour have previously been poured into productions and campaigns for the likes of Timberland, Speedo, Jaguar Land Rover, The North Face, Playstation, Merrell, This Girl Can, Npower, DALI Speakers, Saucony, RNIB and Volvo.
