I am an experienced graphic designer (including work for Disney) and LRPS qualified photographer. Over the last few years I developed an interest in filmmaking and have acted as a stills photographer, focus puller, production/lighting assistant, runner/ driver and twice has had a small cameo acting roles for several small independent films (and occasionally as a Supporting Artist (extra) in professional TV/film productions). I've completed the Film Foundation Fortnight at London Film Academy where I was DOP and co-writer/co-editor on Slasher, a one minute short. I was stills photographer in Curtains, a short by director Nathan Evans, which screened at the BFI Flare Festival and Rough and Ready, a comedy which starred page 3 girl Peta Todd. I was also a photographer at the Raindance Film Festival, photographing Joanna Lumley, Johnny McDaid and other celebrities.
My first short that I wrote, produced in partnership with Brendan Lonergan, was What did you do in the war Grandad?, which won Best Documentary in the We Make Films Not Excuses film festival in 2020. I've has also written a feature film about my uncle’s WW2 RAF career and has a second feature script in synopsis stage.
I'm recently enrolled in the MA in Film Practice at Bournemouth Online University and am on the Ways into Screenwriting course at City Lit.
