IN DEVELOPMENT

I've always had two aspirations with what I make, which is to entertain and inspire. Most of my career I have worked in comedy, which has been a real joy. The past couple of years have been difficult and tje ability to give people a moment of joy in these strange times is something that I love.

 

I want to tell stories that entertain and make people laugh. I want to tell stories that inspire and make people think.

A TRIP TO GERMANY

A German state funded drama-comedy short film currently in post-production. It draws on personal experience of my father needing emergency surgery whilst travelling overseas and my time there in helping him recover. It explores the relationships between child and parent and learning to forgive to move forward.

UNCONVENTIONAL: DOCUSERIES

People who do things differently or lead lives outside the norm have always fascinated me. This series looks at people and perspectives that are a bit unconventional. 

WALK IN MY SHOES

A completely different take on the "Body Swap"comedy trope. What happens with a lonely, racist older white man swaps bodies with a middle aged black man juggling life? What does living life in someone else's shoes do to your perspective on life?

LEGACY: THE STORY OF INDENTURED LABOUR

With the abolition of slavery in the 19th century the world struggled for labour. This shortage was filled by the Indian "Indentured Labour" system. My ancestor was coerced into signing a contract and sent to South Africa. This story of forced labour is almost unknown.

IN THE MIDDLE

A new take on the office comedy, it's a TV series starring a "brown" lead dealing with the 30 something pit falls of work, finding love, casual racism and figuring out what am I supposed to be doing with my life.
