I'm an award-winning Irish director with a passion for the fantastical and irreverent. In 2017 I signed with representation in the USA, Holland and Eastern Europe. I'm currently seeking UK representation with a London-based production company.

An imaginative film-maker working in commercials and content, my work has encompassed TV ads and online promos, fashion films and gallery installations. My talents in design and illustration bring forth a wealth of additional skills to each production - including concept and storyboard artwork. In 2012 I broke into commercial beauty with films for Rimmel London, E4 and Special K. In 2013 I proved my versatility by directing fashion films and video installations for Fault Magazine and Volt Cafe, whilst in 2014 I continued to progress into TV commercials with Wella Shockwaves, Dance Central 3 for Microsoft XBox 360 and Pro:Voke Touch of Silver.

In 2015 I began working internationally whilst my UK work diversified with a film for the Royal Opera House debut of Northern Ballet's modern ballet "The Architect". Recent commercial campaigns have included the relaunch of Soft & Gentle in the UK market, the Summer 2015 campaign for Apricot clothing and 2017 campaigns for Centrum and CENTRE:MK.

I'm keen to branch into narrative, and I'm developing two shorts and a feature with NYC-based producer Siobhán Ní Chiobháin and the writer and producer Rex Glensy - who most notably worked on the Oscar-nominated ‘The Sessions’.

I look forward to developing my striking visual style in every creative challenge that befalls me throughout 2017 . . .

Clients include: Rimmel London, Microsoft, XBox, Procter & Gamble, Channel 4, E4, Northern Ballet, Special K, Universal Records, Sony Europe, CMW and Keyline Brands.
