"A STORY CAN BE ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL THINGS IN THE WORLD!
A STORY CAN MAKE US FEEL; IT CAN MAKE US QUESTION;
IT CAN INSPIRE CHANGE; A STORY HAS THE POWER TO UNITE PEOPLE TOGETHER!"

Who Am I?

I love storytelling—that's why I got into filmmaking in the first place, and it's what drives me to keep pushing forward with new projects all the time. I'm always thinking about how to tell stories better: how to make them feel fresh and original, more meaningful and more compelling.

 

I graduated from the International Film School of Wales and I am also a qualified teacher and lecturer, enjoying the opportunities to work with and inspire young people to develop skills in film and media.

My creative process involves working closely with my crew and collaborating with other creatives on bringing new ideas to life — and that's what makes it so fun! 

I have experience producing a wide variety of projects from shorts and music videos to feature-length films, graphic novels and children's story books. But no matter what type of project I'm working on, I always approach it with a sense of purpose and audience in mind. I want my work to connect with people, be inspiring and above all, be entertaining.
