PERSONAL INFO

As an only child to a single working parent, I had little to no supervision growing up and so was raised in large part by a television. So it ought not come as a surprise that when I was finally of age to venture outside I was drawn to theatre and photography. Having survived childhood with my dreams still somewhat intact, I fostered my passion for the screen arts at the New York Film Academy and further honed my craft at the University of York and the esteemed National Film & Television School respectfully. This journey culminated in the development of a pilot script, which was a TV Pitchbox finalist and made the 2018 Screencraft Film Fund shortlist, and the original short submitted to AFS for consideration, which was previously a finalist for the coveted Emerging Storytellers Grant, sponsored by Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow.
