I'm a British and French director based in London.

I recently graduated from the National Film and Television School with an MA in Directing Fiction.

I believe that my childhood in Kuwait during the Gulf War is where I grew a fascination for historical stories as well as a thirst for discovering the world's variety of cultures.

My films are usually rite of passage stories and often portray characters searching for their own identity within dysfunctional families or wild and hostile environments. I like stories that question moral values and explore the depths of human nature in extreme situations.

In 2012, I sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to direct “Savages in Foreign Lands” a 52' documentary about the lost civilisation of the Guanches and their fight for survival against the invading Conquistadors.

I directed about a dozen short films that featured in festivals internationally, and won awards (Royal Television Society) as well as directed adverts, music videos and a mini series of animations. 

Currently I am developing a feature film along other short form projects.

I'm always happy to chat, so don't hesitate to drop me a line.
