I am a writer and director from Sheffield with a creative interest in LGBTQ history and contemporary social issues.
Commissioned three times through the Lottery funded new talent Digital Shorts scheme, my films have screened internationally. My short film, JUNK, was Iris Prize and Iris Best British Short nominated and won awards at the Amsterdam and Melbourne Queer Film Festivals. My 2019 graduation film, WE ARE DANCERS, was a finalist in the Iris Prize LGBT Festival’s Best British Short Award and was Highly Commended by the jury. It was officially selected for BFI Flare 2020, as well as being longlisted for the BIFA Best British Short Award, shortlisted for the British Short Film Award at the BAFTA’s and nominated for a Student Academy Award.
I am a graduate of the University of Nottingham with a BA in Creative Writing and studied for an MA in Filmmaking at the Northern Film School. I am also a co-founder of Sheffield Short Film Festival and part of the BFI Network x BAFTA Crew 2021 cohort.
I am currently developing a feature film with Rebecca Mark-Lawson (Irene’s Ghost and Poly Styrene: I Am a Cliché) through Tyke Films with support from the BFI and BFI Network.
I am also a full member of the WGGB.
