RADA design graduate; designer for film, TV and theatre 

I have designed for productions in venues including the Arcola Theatre, The Marlowe Theatre, Chickenshed, Rich Mix, The Vaults, Upstairs at the Gatehouse, the Rhodes Theatre, The Space Arts Centre, Sutton House, RADA and the Warwick Arts Centre and have created pieces for events at The National Gallery and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. 

In 2016 I designed and art directed my first feature film, Aghori (due for release in 2019). I designed the multi-award winning short "A Pinprick of Light" in 2017 and my music video designs include "Ride of Your Life", which has had nearly 6 million YouTube hits. Corporate clients include the Home Office, for whom I art directed an educational video on modern slavery, and last year I designed and created pieces for children's dens in CBBC's "The Dengineers". 

My approach to design is very story-centric; I like to tightly storyboard moments and design around symbolism and metaphor, boiling a design down to a set of striking, cohesive images. I want to create stories that are haunting and pertinent to the world we live in.

Prior to RADA I completed an Art Foundation course (specialising in Design for Performance) at Wimbledon College of Art and a BA in English Literature at Warwick University. I have taught on both the Warwick BA course and the RADA theatre design summer school.
