Self Portrait in Red and Gold

Self Portrait in Red and Gold

I am a Hackney born filmmaker with a love of stylised films, and the surreal nature of every day life.

In spite of what Wikipedia says, I am not the famous porn producer/director and founder of Eurocream.

Facts about Me:

1. I love the colour red

2. I have more visually aggressive shirts than normal ones

3. Once I co-designed and built a 7m Psychedelic Lighthouse for Secret Garden Party

4. Under the guise Glazing Squad, I make ceramics from time to time

5. I studied film direction at The Arts University Bournemouth (formerly The Art Institute Bournemouth)

6. My grad short THYME, was shot on 16mm and won Best Student Short at the West Virginia FILMmakers festival

7. Alongside directing, I have spent the past 6.5 years working in the art department for shorts, features and commercials.
