My work in the film industry started in the Cardiff as storyboard artist for the BBC's Doctor Who, working on 34 episodes. There in Wales, I simultaneously provided storyboards for Hartswood Film's Sherlock television series, starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

In 2015, I storyboarded the re-imagined feature film The Crow at Pinewood Studios Wales, but the film is currently on hold. From 2016-2020 I've worked as storyboard artist for feature films, commercials, television and video games for companies including Remedy Games whilst writing and developing a number of my own projects.

To better understand how the storyboarding process affects shooting and post production, I’ve produced a number of short films in Finland and the UK which pay affectionate homage to the practical creature effects films of the 1950's and 1980's.

In 2019 I also produced and directed the first music video 'Control' for Welsh heavy rock band Pearler.

My studio is based in Helsinki, Finland, and I frequently relocate to the UK to work in the film and television industry.
