I was born in Southampton, UK and have lived in Japan since 2009. I graduated from the Intercultural Institute of Japan, Tokyo in 2011 where I studied Japanese. After graduation I joined the video production company ACTV Japan Ltd as Production Manger, where I oversaw the production of a variety of original contents, corporate videos and broadcast programming. In 2015 I joined the Tokyo-based film and video production company PRIDGE Inc as a Director and Producer. I founded my own video production business, AB Video Japan, in 2017. I have served as Assistant Director and 2nd Unit Director on a number of short special effects films in Japan, including THE CRAWLER IN THE DARK and NEW RETRO HERO: SPACE HUNTER X. In 2015 I served as Assistant Director on the short film HEART OF SWORD, produced in collaboration with Shochiku Studios as part of the Kyoto Filmmakers Lab.
