I am an award-winning Writer & Director from Bristol, UK, who primarily focuses on Horror & dark genre films. In 2018, I graduated from the University of Gloucestershire with a First-Class Honours degree in Film Production. During my time there, I specialised in sound design and editing before gaining the confidence to pursue my main passion of writing and directing. In late 2018, I founded the dark-genre production company Terror Arcade (Ltd) with writer/producer Jess Bartlettunder which I continue to make shorts and features.

My 0 budget lockdown short Stagnant won the Audience Choice Award in Arrow Video and Celluloid Screams' Horror Lockdown Competition in 2020. My second lockdown short Time Out has gained over 25 Million + views across all platforms. In 2021, I wrote & directed two episodes of The Haunted Museum for Discovery+I'm currently working on a spooky new TV show that will be released in late 2022 and the 'Pegs' segment of the new Clubhouse feature-length horror anthology. I'm also developing a range of feature-length screenplays to give you nightmares in the near future.
