About Me

Whether it has been for a commercial brand or a charity, I have spent the last 7 years making films about environmental and social issues, and I will always strive to make honest films that have a positive impact on the world. From the Scottish Highlands to Ivorian Jungles to Maldivian Tuna boats, I’ve been lucky enough to shoot films all over the globe. I am just as happy writing and directing a film as I am operating a camera, or simply taking photos, but I also enjoying writing for animations. My work has been recognised in various international awards. I have a background in marine biology and broadcast television.

I am currently based in London, UK.
