London based freelancer working as a writer, director, producer and events coordinator.
My more recent short film was 'First Bite' which I wrote and directed. The project was funded through the North London Film Partnership & Film London and was entirely shot in 11 hours. The film is a coming of age story about a fifteen year old girl dealing with her developing sexuality and went on to screen at Underwire Film Festival, London Short Film Festival and Brooklyn Girl Film Festival.
Before 'First Bite' I produced another Film London short called 'Physical Education' which won Best Film at the Best of Boroughs Awards (audience award, 2010) and a music promo for up and coming RnB artist Makeida which was shot in Tenerife. I am currently developing a new short film called 'Siren'.
I also set up the organisation 're:Vault; which aims to help indie crowdfunding filmmakers through film exhibition and networking nights.
