Bio

hi!

I am an Edinburgh and London-based filmmaker with experience in short film directing and production spanning drama, documentary and experimental genres. I have spent my time at Edinburgh College of Art developing skills in all stages of production. This includes script development and casting, location scouting and editing. I also have experience in experimental self-shooting and photography.

I have produced short films that have gone onto their selection at festivals both in the UK and Europe, including BFI Future and Little Wing Film Festival. I am primarily focused on highlighting contemporary LGBTQ+ issues in my independent work and am an aspiring producer-director of short-form documentary content.
