About THE FOUNDER
I began my career in the film industry over a decade ago at Deluxe Digital, before moving onto Theatrical Sales departments of Warner Brothers and later Twentieth Century Fox.
My practical knowledge of the business of film is supported by my First Class Honours Degree in Film and Media from University of London.
I joined The Philm Company in 2012 and produced THE LAST SHOWING, a $2m psychological thriller, starring Robert Englund (NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET), Emily Berrington (24, HUMANS) and Finn Jones (GAME OF THRONES), which sold to Sony Pictures in the UK, as well as a number of top distributors around the world. I have also raised a development fund, which allowed for the production of the BAPTISM SPEC TRAILER and purchase of a number of options on books and scripts.
In 2014 I produced THE FOUR WARRIORS - family action adventure, released by distribution companies, such as Metrodome (UK), Lionsgate (US) in 2015, amongst many others globally.
A year later I co-produced a US shot thriller - INDISCRETION, starring Oscar winner Mira Sorvino, Cary Elwes, Christopher Backus and Katherine McNamara, represented domestically by Preferred Content.
In 2016 I became the sole winner of UK government (Trade & Investment’s department) run competition – Talent Goes to Hollywood, for the spec trailer Baptism (a feature film I am in development with alongside director Phil Hawkins), and was awarded a trip to Los Angeles for the BAFTA Britannia Awards, as well as a number of meetings with Hollywood studios and high profile production companies, in order to finance the project.
My last co-production credit is for THE WATCHER IN THE WOODS - directed by Melissa Joan Hart, produced by Paula Hart, starring Oscar winner - Anjelica Huston.
When time allows I run industry talks at Soho House and the Century Club.
I also freelance as a TV commercial's and branded content producer. To fulfill my inner teacher, I have also became a lead tutor on a number of producing courses, run by the Met Film School.
And I always welcome a challenge!
