On set - The (Un)Holy Trinity


I am a London based production designer for independent films. Recent features include Elizabeth Sankey’s latest MUBI feature doc, Witches, premiering at Tribeca Festival 2024 and showcasing in the BFI and British Council Cannes Great 8; Hansal Mehta’s, The Buckingham Murders, premiered at BFI London Film Festival 2023 and 
Will Higo’s, The Group, premiered at Frightfest 2022. Supervising art director and art director credits for feature film and tv drama include The Critic (2023) premiering at Toronto International Film Festival 2023, Black Mirror Season 7 ep 2 (2024), 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 sharing our craft and encouraging new faces into the industry through mentoring (BFI Film Academy, UAL and BAFTA), and by co-organising and participating in events with the British Film Designers Guild and The Production Designer’s Collective. 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.

After studying a fine art BA at Oxford Brookes School of Arts, and an MA in theatre design at Wimbledon College of Art, installation art and the scenographic process of stage design remains a firm influence for my work in film.
