My short film PASTRY, featured in the British Film Council Directory is still enjoying a very successful career in the international film festival circuit (Official Selection at 29 festivals), found a worldwide film distributor, and Eurochannel acquired the rights for a non-exclusive deal, for 2 years, to be aired on pay cable, pay satellite and pay mobile television all over the world.  You can watch it here: https://vimeo.com/166188485

My very first short - TWO BROTHERS - also featured in the British Film Council Directory, got a generous note from Tessa Ross, former Head of Film 4 (Channel 4): “It’s a beautiful, distinctive piece of work and you tell your story in an intriguing and intimate way. I'm sure the team would be interested to see what you make next, and how your filmmaking develops as you explore a bigger world and continue to grow the contexts for your stories “

I am a passionate and dedicated London based creative in the theatre and film industries. I have been mainly working in theatre in UK. And I'm now taking my first steps into film.
