Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I'm an award winning director/producer who also lights, writes and teaches.   + live multicamera directing.

In a previous existence, I was a BBC TV director, then Course Leader BA Film Production at AUB, I've  produced, directed or shot over 50 shorts and the films have screened at festivals worldwide.   I completed  a MA Screenwriting  at Bournemouth Uni. and was selected for EIFF Talent Lab 2013.

I've written a load of  shorts and a number of feature screenplays including Phoebe Langtry, a period drama about the woman, who in 1813, built the only surviving working windmill in Hampshire; Best Of Intentions, a World War II romantic action movie and Jack’s Back, a supernatural suspense horror about the return of Jack the Ripper during a theatre performance. (Currently optioned for 2016 production.)

Currently got three shorts out on the festival circuit, am editing another 20 min short filmed in Toronto in July and developing a couple of micro budget features, based on locations and facilities I have access to.
