I started my journey into the world of commercial film-making with a series of films for Raleigh International in India. It combined my love of travel with telling simple human stories and I haven’t looked back since.
Today, I work as an independent freelance commercials director, based in the UK working with high end brands and top agencies.
I work across documentary and commercial styles, but at the heart of my approach to film-making is a desire to make original films that engage on an emotional level. This approach is anchored by a concentration on storytelling. I want to take the viewer on a journey, to make them think and feel, and that feeds into every aspect of my work. From script preparation to shot selection and right through to final delivery.
I have a strong background in drama – having worked as an actor for 10 years. That influences the way I tell my stories – whether that’s encouraging performances from ‘real people’ or shaping a film to create the perfect dramatic arc.
I love working with big crews, but I’m equally happy trekking up a mountain – just me and the camera.
