film maker

My third film as a writer and director is Necessary Evils.

The Army needs psychics to identify terrorists before they strike. During his ‘special training’, Private Doyle learns failure can be fatal.

 As a teenager, I watched a documentary on The Milgram and Stanford Prison Experiments, which showed that ordinary people only need permission to become extraordinary beasts. In Necessary Evils I've explored how far the Military will go to win a war against terrorists, and why people quietly observe evil—and do nothing.

Necessary Evils will be included in the anthology feature film, For We Are Many, produced by Hex Media.
