London, United Kingdom

I was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1990. At the age of sixteen, my family uprooted and moved to London, United Kingdom where I completed my education. I originally aimed to study at university for a degree in physics but, upon discovering the film magazine Sight & Sound, decided instead to attend film school. I studied Film and Television Production at the Creative Arts school in the University of Hertfordshire, eventually completing a masters degree in 2015. For my thesis, I wrote and directed a spec script for a short student film entitled Conduitas well as scripting another short spec entitled Mr. Midnight. I co-wrote and starred in a small cameo in the independently produced short film I Thank The State, a sci-fi set in a dystopian future. The film has garnered acclaim at numerous festivals and is now available to watch online. I then co-starred and co-wrote the, again independently financed, short black comedy Corporate Corpse, which has just been completed. Recently, I co-wrote another independently produced sci-fi short, Sanctuary, which has yet to be released. It should be noted that these films were all made by a group of friends with a passion for cinema, and not seasoned industry professionals. So whilst this profile contains the work of an amateur, I hope you will still find my work entertaining, engaging and bubbling with passion. Ultimately, I know that I still have a lot to learn, but I wish to keep learning, experimenting and honing the craft. It has always been a dream to one day pen the screenplay for a feature film, a dream that I intend to earn.
