drama on screen


In June 2006, I was one of eight participants invited to take part in the BBC Drama Directors’ Academy: four weeks’ intensive training in directing single and multi-camera drama.

Since then I’ve directed thirty hours of popular television drama, including EastEnders, Doctors and Shameless.

In 2008, I was awarded a UK Film Council / Screen Yorkshire commission for my short film, This Way Up, which received its world premiere at the Palm Springs International Short Film Festival 2009.
