← Jury

I lead the production department at Droga5 London, overseeing the agency’s output across every conceivable discipline – short and long-form film, still imagery, experiential, interactive, audio, partnerships, and anything else besides.

Previous to this, I spent 10 years at BBH London, first as an Agency Producer (working on Axe, The Guardian and Audi, amongst others) and then as Managing Director of entertainment/content division Black Sheep Studios.

Recent production credits include the BAFTA-winning short film Home, Solange Knowles’ Metatronia, and NIMIC, the new short film from Yorgos Lanthimos.

When was the last time you felt truly alive and inspired, and what triggered it?
This morning, when my timeline was interrupted by this kid and his unbridled commitment to the cause. FIRE.
