    I worked as an actor in both theatre and film for several years gaining valuable practical experience before turning to writing and directing for film.
    My recent short action film Junction Zero was nominated for Best Apocalyptic Action at the 2021 End Of Days Film Festival USA and received an Honorable Mention at the March edition of the 2021 Berlin Flash Film Festival.
    My science fiction comedy short film Professor Henry Bowfax's Incredible Journey Through Time! won a Silver Award at the 2019 Spotlight Short Film Awards USA, a Special Mention Award at the 2019 One-Reeler Short Film Competition USA, was nominated for Most Creative/Original Film at the 2019 Scottish Short Film Festival and was a Finalist and Honorable Mention Winner for Best Indie Short at the September 2019 edition of the Vegas Movie Awards USA.
    My short films have also included Robber Girls utilising my love of history in my first historical period piece which won a Silver Award at the 2017 Spotlight Short Film Awards USA, Best Jury Choice Award at the Direct Monthly Online Film Festival USA July 2019.

    Very interested in history, particularly the 18th century, and enjoy making reproduction historical weaponry and costumes.
