Born in south London in the late eighties, Lyle got his start making low budget rap videos for a legendary New York M.C; taking up residence in one of the grimiest hotels on Times Square to get the job done.  Conditions have somewhat improved since then and Lyle has forged an exciting career in both the music video and short form worlds:

His short film I Adore You for musician Goldie, starred Stephen Graham (This is England / Boardwalk Empire) and examined the parental struggles of an inmate within the British open prison system. The film would earn numerous music video nominations, with Lyle also receiving a Best new director nomination at the Kinsale Shark Awards.

Lyle’s fascination for American street culture and the untold stories of the underworld heavily informs his work; short films such as Phanor (premiered on NOWNESS) document Miami's tragic gun war one memorial T-shirt at a time, whilst 78 on 79th (premiered on Channel 4) shines a light on the city’s gangster dentistry underworld.

Lyle is currently developing a feature documentary on the history of good teeth in hip hop entitled Mouth Full Of Gold; featuring A$AP Rocky, Just-Ice, Shirtking Phade, Cee-Lo Green and A$AP Ferg.
