Lecturer in Film Production

Film and Television

I am a director and writer, with a particular passion for regional and character driven stories. As well as writing and directing my own film work, I have vast experience working as a First AD, running sets on other productions, as well as shooting music videos, commercials and promos. I am an active filmmaker and enjoy sharing and drawing upon my own experiences, in order to help the development of my students.


I graduated from the University Of Gloucestershire in 2010 with a 1st Class Honors degree and my graduation film 'Small Hours' won Best Undergraduate Production at the BUFVC Learning On Screen Awards and Best Student Film at the Crystal Palace International Film Festival. The film also secured me a place on the MA Directing Fiction course at the National Film & Television School, where I was awarded a prestigious David Lean scholarship to study. Upon graduating from the NFTS with more successful short films under my belt, I signed with talent and literary agency Curtis Brown and now have a number of projects in development. My most recent film, a short for Bridgeway Films, produced by BAFTA winning and OSCAR nominated producer Chris Hees, titled 'Tommie,' is currently being submitted to festivals worldwide.
