Using the fragility and impermanence of 16mm film, I have documented social history throughout England during a decade of great divide and unrest, encompassing the breadth of this country's society and diverse culture.

Further works explore mortality, masculinity, solitude, and ritual, referencing and dissecting my upbringing.

In 2022, my film Mirrors, supported by BFI Doc Society, premiered in the International Short Competition at Sheffield DocFest and was later longlisted for BIFA Best Short Film.

My first feature documentary, Shadows, is now in production and examines class structure, identity, and the balance of power in England.

Living in isolation, Beckett struggles to find direction in his life following a bereavement. He faces the family he neglected and confronts the paths ahead of him.

Subtitles juxtapose the protagonist’s silent state, his private thoughts intrusive and impossible to verbalise.
