I was born in Blackburn, in the north of England and with a desire to tell stories, I began making films. Initially this was in documentaries, but a focus on narrative has translated into other forms.
My films have had the honour of winning awards at a number of festivals, including 'Best documentary' at Berlin, Barcelona, New York and Leeds International film festivals. They have screened at over 100 film festivals around the globe, including Tribeca, Sheffield Docfest, DOC NYC, London Short Film Festival and many more. They have also garnered 7 Vimeo staff picks and been featured in The New York Times, The Guardian, The Atlantic, and Short of the Week.
My current documentary 'The Last Storm' had it's World Première at Tribeca Film Festival 2018, won the Jury Prize at Hot Springs Documentary Festival and has qualified for the Oscars Best Short Documentary Competition 2020.
In 2019 I also had the privilege of being the President of the International Feature documentary Jury at the 2019 Sofia International FIlm Festival.
