I was a film teacher at Wimbledon College of Arts in London for 6 months in 2007. And I have taught the following subjects: An Introduction to Film; Visual Storytelling; Screenwriting; Film Production; British Cinema; American Cinema; and The History of Cinema.
Having been a film student myself for almost 4 years, I know exactly what I looked for in a teacher to inspire me to pursue a career in the film industry. I'm passionate about film and the art of visual storytelling. For me, the most satisfying and rewarding part of teaching is to pass on the same passion and enthusiasm to my students and fuel their desire to become filmmakers themselves.
I have worked in film production for 15 years as a producer, screenwriter and director, both in London and California. In 2012, I directed my first feature film. The film was distributed in 24 countries worldwide by Paramount Pictures. Last year, I wrote a biopic about the founder of the Make-A-Wish foundation. And I am currently working with Sony Pictures to produce the first motion picture in history about the infamous plane hijacker, D.B. Cooper.
I have vast experience as both a film instructor and as a filmmaker. I've been taught by some of the best film professors in England at the University of Reading and by seasoned filmmakers at the New York Film Academy. I have worked on numerous film sets and production offices on everything from multi-million dollar productions to shoe-string budget indies. I draw upon this knowledge to give each student a unique and personalized learning experience. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to achieve great success in your film studies.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
