I am a Cinematographer and Director born and based in London.
As a DOP I have lensed commercial campaigns and content for clients including Prada, Dior, Nike, Adidas, Hugo Boss and Mercedes. I have shot music videos, shorts, documentaries and art films, working across film and digital formats. I am always open to conversations about new projects and love finding ways to collaborate and serve a creative vision.
As a Director I strive to weave emotionally powerful narratives with compelling characters at the heart. Persistent thematic preoccupations include marginalisation, identity, privilege and resistance. My debut short ‘FORTRESS’, written by Adam Lane, was supported and part funded by Film London/BFI and screened at the BAFTA eligible London Short Film Festival in January 2019. My debut Music Video, for Hejira’s ‘Ribs’, dropped on Boiler Room’s 4:3 channel in March 2019. Both tangle with the on-going refugee crisis in Europe.
In both my professional capacities I represent myself. Please get in touch:
