Bio

My debut short film, The Stars & The Stones, was an official selection of multiple Oscar accredited film festivals, including the Calgary International Film Festival and Raindance Film Festival to name just a few.

Based on this success I was flown to Tuscany to direct a stage show to a live audience of four thousand that was simultaneously broadcast on Italian television.

The following year, I was hired to be a Speaker for the Screenwriting Expo in Los Angeles, where I taught a popular class on short film-making, working alongside such luminaries as William Goldman.

As a screenwriter, I have sold three feature film screenplays and numerous short film scripts to international production companies, and have also worked for a Los Angeles talent agency for a year as a Story Analyst.

I Directed Tobias Menzies in my multi-award winning film, The Velvet Abstract, an environmental short produced on six continents, and featuring visual effects talents from Star Wars, The Hunger Games, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avatar, Lost, Game of Thrones, The Martian, and many more. Scored by the world-renowned Composer Jean-Pascal Beintus (The Danish Girl, Argo, Harry Potter, The Imitation Game), the film was part of a recent BAFTA event where I was a Speaker on stage for a live Q&A. The film has already won 20 awards, including 14 for Best Film. More about the film and festival news can be found on the official website www.thevelvetabstract.com

My other current release is the short film drama, The Inuring, which is currently on the festival circuit. It screened at the Oscar qualifying Rhode Island Film Festival, and picked up 20 awards including Best UK Short FilmBest Director, three times, Best Narrative Short Film, and Best in Show. More about the film can be found on the official website: www.theinuring.com

These are the debut releases of my new production company Sunset Aperture where I am now busy on its third short film release, When the Rain Sets In.
