I am a director and writer with a taste for unusual characters and mixed formats, working across branded content and commercials, documentaries, and music videos. I was born in London, but currently live in my hometown, Lisbon. I won the Sarah Willis Poetry Prize at the age of 18 in New York, attended the London Film School, and was selected for Berlinale Talents. My short films have been shown and awarded in festivals like Clermont-Ferrand, Tampere, London Short FF, and International Documentary Festival Amsterdam (IDFA), and recognized by MTV, NOWNESS, Boooooooom!, and Vimeo Staff Picks. Alongside these I have created original content for brands like Rizla, Fred Perry, Lisbon Fashion Week, and Vodafone. I like epic clouds, dogs, and driving to loud music.
