Producer/director with 15 years professional experience working in film, TV and corporate filmmaking, across all job roles, specialising in directing and editing. I work independently and also run indie production company Turtle Canyon Comedy, based at Pinewood Studios. My short films have played at and won awards at festivals around the world and I have recently produced a four-part Netflix series, directed a film for Sky Arts and directed a bunch of the best stand up specials in the UK from the last few years.


I work with a wide range of talented new and established comedians, have directed several stand-up comedians' live shows as well as developing TV scripts and formats with some of the best comedians in the UK. I am experienced in script development, shooting on a wide range of cameras and all aspects of post-production. Online comedy that I've produced and directed have achieved over 7 million views and have been produced using a mixture of funding sources including brand sponsorship, crowdfunding and private investment.

As a stand up comedian myself I work well and have great relationships with other comedians, my play debuted at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018, my short film PanettoneGate was nominated for best short at the Funny Women awards and my other short Polly won the main award. My work has been written about in The Guardian, The Mirror, The Evening Standard, The Independent, Chortle, British Comedy Guide and countless blogs and viral sites such as Buzzfeed and Reddit. My stand up show Single Father of None was nominated for Best Show at Leicester Comedy Festival in 2021 and my 2022 show Putting Zoo was shortlisted for the Comedian's Choice Award.

Showreel below showcases directing and producing ability, I also self-shot and edited a lot of the content, as well as writing or script editing a large proportion of the content... "Yeah, well done, we get it, you do loads of stuff"
