Director / DP
Whilst in this role I’ve enjoyed making broadcast documentaries, promos, and short narrative films.
These include, 'PRIMARY BURNS' which won a Royal Television Society Award for Best Non-Factual and, ‘AN ORDINARY MONDAY', which won Best Director at the Austria International Film Festival, as well as Best British Short Film at the London Independent Film Awards in 2017.
