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.

The artwork dismantles, examines, and purges past experiences through a journey from perpetual isolation to liberty, solitude, and acceptance.

Comprising of a dozen vignettes, each moving portrait is a sensitive and, at times, surreal exploration between documentary truth and poetic interpretation.
