Biography

I've been writing and directing short films, plays and narrative music videos, now looking to move into TV and gain my first TV credit. I've been shadowing TV directors while writing a pilot for an original TV drama project. I have producer experience on some of my own projects and also on mixed media, animated & VFX heavy commercials. My background is in contemporary art and film projection.
