I am a filmmaker and content producer from London, England.
I studied BA Film and Television Production at the University of Westminster, where in my final year I made a short documentary A Season of Jodorowsky and worked as Art Director on the Student Academy Award® nominated short film The Miserables directed by Benjamin Taylor.
Following graduation I primarily worked in documentary, as a post-production runner on shows like BBC Panorama and as a production assistant for Current TV. I have also created a wide range of short-form content, from video for brands like Virgin, to promos for shows by Carnesky Productions.
Since 2013 I have been fortunate to work for Pinball London, handling production roles & digital content on a series of feature films including Words with Gods produced by Guillermo Arriaga, Burroughs: The Movie directed by Howard Brookner, Uncle Howard directed by Aaron Brookner and executive produced by Jim Jarmusch and On The Milky Road directed by Emir Kusturica, starring Monica Bellucci.
Elsewhere I have edited and produced exciting long-form documentary and entertainment content for different clients.
As well as production work, I have written extensively on the subject of film. I have covered the Berlinale as part of Berlinale Talent Press and Cannes with Nisi Masa, as well as writing for publiciations including Little White Lies, VICE's Grolsch Canvas and New Empress Magazine.
Presently I am in post-production on feature documentary Agent of Change, about the legacy of Beat Generation writer William S. Burroughs, filmed in the UK, USA, Mexico, Morocco and Belgium.
I'm also a member of the European Beat Studies Network, which is dedicated to the academic exploration of the Beat Generation.
