I began my directing career in the world of music videos and commercials at Ridley Scott Associates in 2004 with iconic music videos for artists such as Arctic Monkeys and spots for Cadburys, 3 Mobile and Samsung, the latter winning the British Television Advertising Craft Award for Best New Director in 2005.
In 2011 I directed my first feature film through Partizan Films, a documentary about the DJ & Producer David Guetta which had international theatrical release. Following projects included the main campaign spot for the BBC's Glastonbury coverage and the launch of PlayStation 4 with the British rapper Tinie Tempah.
I joined Moxie Pictures in 2014 and subsequently directed a series of online films for Mastercard, with celebrity talent including Pharrell Williams, as well as a global campaign for YouTube featuring a host of musicians. My music video work continued with stunning live pieces for Paolo Nutini’s “Iron Sky” at Abbey Road Studios and Michael Kiwanuka’s “Love & Hate”.
My first self funded short film about the seminal artist Chris Wilson followed in 2015 and featured on Nowness. I am currently developing the subject into a feature film based on the artist’s life.
In December of 2017, my video for Arctic Monkeys’ “Brianstorm” was entered into the BFI’s film archive as one of the most significant British music videos of all time.
This year I wrote, produced and directed a documentary short “A Life Like Water” about my 80 year old father and his reflections on life, mortality and religion.
