About Otello

My desire is to be a writer and director, and I work towards this goal every day by writing, editing, reading, and studying.

In the last year, I have completed three drafts for three feature films. I'm currently working on two of those and redrafting the stories.

I live in Glasgow, working at a whisky bar, as a brand ambassador for Peatreekers whisky, an SFX Technician for Artem, and working independently as a writer and director for narrative music videos and my own projects.

Unique traits: I am endeavour and determination. My tide will always rise up and overcome the challenges that are presented to me. I have an unfathomable want to create.
