he / him

I’m a London-based filmmaker. My early work was broadcast by BBC, FOX, MTV and Comedy Central, but I’m best known for the short film “Shame and glasses”, which was acquired by HBO Europe and MoMa New York, and was an official selection in over 200 festivals, including the Academy qualifying TIFF Kids, Chicago Children’s Int Film Festival, Warsaw Film Festival, Uppsala Film Festival and Guanajuato Film Festival, and won the “Best Overall” award at Chicago Int. Film Festival’s CineYouth section.

The script of my upcoming short film “Just Kids” was rated in the top 2% of all Short Film projects on Coverfly and was a finalist at the ScreenCraft Film Grant.

While developing a slate of personal projects, I work as a freelance Script Editor, Script Coordinator, and Script Reader for Film and HETV Drama. My credits include “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power”, Marvel’s “Secret Invasion”, “The Peripheral”, and “Master of None”. I also support Netflix’s International Original Features team providing coverage and development notes on their commissioning slate. Prior to this, I also assisted Oscar-winning directors Peter Cattaneo and Sebastian Lelio on their feature films “Military Wives” and “Disobedience”.

I am a BAFTA Connect and Directors UK member.
