I am an early career/ emerging production designer working on short films, live performance and art installation. I have recently completed my first 2 indie feature films as designer.

I was awarded the technical award for best art direction at the Long Island Film Festival 2019 for Mea Culpa, a short film by Jason Fite. I have been a BAFTA crew member since 2017 and am a member of the British Film Designers guild and the British Society of Theatre Designers.

When I’m not designing I assist in the art department on a variety of feature film and tv productions.

Working across performance design and design for screen opens exciting possibilities for new work and new ways of working. Finding new ways of working is something I believe is one way to address to imbalance of social and economic diversity and inclusion in the film industry. I am interested in and welcome projects that explore the relationship between these art forms and share these ideals.

“None of the traditional arts reveals so massive a disproportion between the possibilities it offers and its achievements.” - Luis Buñuel 1959, in Cinema as an Instrument of Poetry
