Artist = Actor – Writer – Producer – Director



Searching For Dottore was officially nominated at the bafta qualifying festival Carmarthen Bay Film Festival which is fantastic!

I’ve been travelling to italy a lot this year to meet film commissions, producers and talent. My first ever trip to Bologna and Ravenna which are both in th emilia-romagna region, ever region has a unique story.

 An artist by nature I was sketching , painting and singing before the acting bug took over. My secondary school tutor was the head of drama so that was an early sign…

I completed a 1 year foundation drama course at City Lit, studying meisner and stanislavski techniques, my drama teacher Mark Phoenix was also a working actor as well as improvisation classes at Anna Scher

I joined the Raindance Independent Film Organisation where I took screenwriting, producer and directing courses.  I’ve  directed a couple of shorts.   

I am currently developing the wedding comedy feature film version #SHSWW.   I have previously directed a couple of shorts which are scenes from the feature script.  I’ve directed a music video featuring a self-penned song ‘Part time Lover’ and one of my shorts ‘Feel the Rhythm’ is a proof of concept to the feature #SHSWW.   It is currently on the festival circuit holding 30 nominations  ( 24 of them in india) to date and 3 award wins.
