I am a London based production designer making shorts and indie features that screen at festivals all over the world. Thriller feature film, The Group, premiered at London’s Frightfest in August 2022 and feature film, War of the Worlds: The Attack, is being distributed by Vertical Entertainment set for a spring 2023 theatrical release. I also work as an art director on feature films, The Critic (2023) and TV Drama, Somewhere Boy (2022), and Landscapers (2021) which won a TV BAFTA for best production design.

I have 10+ years experience in community engagement for underrepresented people in the industry through my work at leading film and arts charity, Signal Film and Media in Barrow-in-Furness in my home county. I remain committed to encouraging new faces into the industry through mentoring (BFI Film Academy and Bafta Crew), and by taking part in events with the British Film Designers Guild and The Production Designer’s Collective.

After moving to London study a masters in theatre design, the scenographic process of stage design remains a firm influence for my work in film. I co-founded Micro Short Films, a covid lockdown project creating opportunities for professional networking by collaborating on super short, collective made drama/ experimental films of 60s-2mins, many of which enjoyed success in the film festival circuit.
