Background & Education

Born in the East Midlands, raised through London, Hong Kong and an international boarding school in Surrey. I am very proud of my muiltcultured childhood and it has given me a great edge in communication and my work. I graduated from Ealing Studios Met Film School & Bournemouth University, where I received a leadership commendation. I freelance, mentor and volunteer across many projects in various capacities, from my most passionate craft in scriptwriting to producing, directing, cinematography and editing.

 

Focus & Relationships

Communication and preparation are essential for a great production. I regularly lead teams of various sizes, build budgets from scratch, work with high-level talent from actors to composers and regularly teach new filmmakers, including Silver Arts award students at the BFI Film Academy in camera and editing. I have always aimed high and encouraged others to do the same, resulting in a number of recognitions and awards with some great contacts and long-term relationships that have served me well. In essence, this is where ‘DanFam’ derives its name. A lot of the time a creative project can seem like working with an extended family, I guess. A film is nothing without the team and only as good as the filmmaking family that it takes to create them.
