About me

 

 

So far my career has taken me across the UK and overseas In France, America and Australia.
Over the years, I've been involved in a mixture of independent short and feature films, live event, music video, and theatre projects.

Some of these productions are; "A Winter's Dream" (Cash4kids advert 2020), “She Lives Alone” (Short film, 2020), “The Good Times” (Short film, 2020), “Lion” Creative project written by the children of Ecoles D’Arbaud (For inclusion in Conservatoire Aix theatre project), “A War Poem” (Short film, 2020), "Bringing Back Golden-eye" (Feature 2019/20), “Cool” (Azusa Pacific University, California, community project 2016/17) 

My professional journey started in 2013. A year before graduating from drama school, I was offered work on “Ghost Ship” (directed by Robert Young) as an assistant. There, I quickly discovered my passion in the production world. My experience working on set was captivating, I wanted to learn all there was to know about film-making. During my time on set, I worked closely with director Robert Young, who I am very thankful for teaching me the beginner ropes.

After graduating, I worked as an actor while leading drama groups across the UK on a freelance basis. This experience led me to working in L.A. with Azusa Pacific University on their community project. My weeks there involved working with, creating an idea and directing my school group, while assisting other directors with their groups. For me, it was important to see each part of the project, as each group would then come together and perform as one big performance on the night. The ages of the students ranged from 10 to 16, with the biggest group being 250 students.

  

My next time on set was for a TV pilot 'Back In 2 Mins' written and directed by the brilliant Nick Turnbull. Nick appreciated my dedication and drive so he asked if I wanted to work beside him on set as an assistant and off set as associate producer, this offer startled me at first but I quickly found myself in my element and knew this was a career I wanted to explore.

 

During this process, I continued my freelance work while building my professional network. It wasn't long before I decided to take the step of moving over to focus primarily on production based roles.
