​BACKGROUND:

Studying cinematography in the UK at the prestigious Bournemouth Screen Academy under Witold Stok BSC (alumni include, Edgar Wright) was a great technical and creative base for my career. With a lust for hands-on experience I worked on over thirty 16mm productions, my student cinematography work has been screened at festivals around the world, winning various awards. I went on to work in the industry in the camera department and then as a cinematographer for several indie productions before focusing on writing and directing.

Currently shooting content for some of the biggest brands around, whilst making shorts in the UK and USA, and developing a feature.
