DIRECTOR / CAMERA OPERATOR / EDITOR

  • Instagram

I am a film-maker working in London, Kent, and Sussex. I work as a director, camera operator and editor. I cut my teeth directing, shooting and editing documentaries in far flung parts of the world. Complementing this documentary experience, I have developed a strong visual eye and a knack for storytelling through my work directing four feature films (with distribution through Netflix and Amazon) and dozens of music videos, news segments, and corporate films. I have worked with commercial clients such as Coca Cola, Fanta, Lynx, Smirnoff, Zovirax, Nationwide, Racing UK, Unilever, Wembley Park, Bullitt, Liquiproof and EF.
