An award-winning story producer and screen sector entrepreneur, I am the founder of movie production company White Lantern Film, and commercials and content video production company The Light Side. I have produced 3 movies, the award-winning environmental documentary Drying For Freedom, film noir Emulsion and Sweeney Todd inspired urban thriller K-Shop. I have a slate of independent films in development, and have also produced a number of award-winning short films alongside a range of commercials and content for brands such as LV, BT, Mizuno and Garmin. As a producer I was selected by Film London as an Emerging Producer, won the Arts University College Bournemouth Business Challenge Award twice and I have been nominated by the British Council for Young Screen Entrepreneur.
To support the two main businesses, I have also founded crewing service Freelancer Direct, and location management service I-Permit. I also support the local community through media education via Project Insight.I.E., and nurture talent through the BFI Film Academy in Bournemouth Get Inside Movies and networking group B-Reel.
