I am a twice BAFTA nominated comedy director with a recent BBC3 pilot Please Help receiving a nomination in the 2022 TV BAFTAs. I was nominated in 2014 for short film Island Queen. I have also directed work for ITV2 and Comedy Central. I'm represented for Film and TV by Casarotto, and for adverts by Merman with co-director Rachel Stubbings as BARBARA
In my role as Associate Professor I specialise in filmmaking with an emphasis on developing short films, professional opportunities and post production apprenticeships.
I'm currently engaged in a PHD researching into streaming, performance and audience participation. My research focuses on comedy and the function of practice as research. I've recently delivered papers at Queen Margaret University, the University of Bedfordshire and LSBU.
I regularly talk on professional panels including the BBC Comedy Festival, Sundance London, Aesthetica Film Festival, Short Com Industry Day at the Edinburgh Fringe, and at the London Comedy Film Festival.
At the BFI Future Film Festival I sat on a panel titled 'How to make money and get by'.
I deliver a number of filmmaking classes for BECTU and the Actor's Cafe, for charity East Side Trust and at a number of universities such as the University of Warwick and the University of Gloucestershire. I've also mentored on schemes such as 'Shortflix', which was run by Creative England and Sky Arts.
I host a number of comedy film nights across London including 'Up Close and Personal With Mister Tibbs' and 'Shooting the Breeze.'
