About me

I studied a one  year intensive Filmaking diploma at the London Film Academy (LFA) and graduated in March 2012. I studied all aspects of practical filmmaking from script writing to Cinematography. I gained experience there as DOP/Camera Operator working on various shorts, documentaries and filming events.
I have worked on an award winning short and many other projects including features, shorts and corporates that have given me good working experience with both 16mm film and digital cameras. Also over the past couple of years I have gained credits as gaffer spark and grip which have given me knowledge of both lights, tripods, fluid heads, dollies and various camera mounts.

Currently I have just finished shooting the first section of a low budget feature as dop.

I am also in the middle of writing a feature script with a friend which we hope to finish and getting funding for in the next year. Overall I feel my experience in a variety of different roles, includong both technical and creative aspects could make me an asset in your upcoming project.
