“There’s a question people often ask me as they glance at the broad range of work across multiple disciplines for an array of very different clients - ‘What do you specialise in?’…
I’m all about the emotional journey. Whether I’m making a film, a piece of branded content, a documentary, a music video, or telling a fashion story, it’s always the narrative that I’m interested in. I’m naturally inquisitive. I’m interested in people. I ask a lot of questions and I listen. I frame the story through the eyes of the expecting audience, and I want to be entertained.”
