Wayne graduated with a degree in Graphic Design at Oxford & Cherwell College in 2004. His career began in partnership with writer/director Alex Garcia, initially with music videos, which saw them win the Domino Records and Audience Award at the Radar Festival in 2007. Later that year their short film, HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDAD, won the BAFTA '60 Seconds of Fame’ competition. After the multiple award-winning short film DIEGO’S STORY (2009), he directed Tom Bidwell’s WOULD LIKE TO MEET (2010) for Channel 4’s ‘Coming Up’.

Following on from this, Wayne went on to direct SECRET DIARY OF A CALL GIRL Series 4 (2010) with Billie Piper, the lead block of MISFITS Series 3 (2012) and the second half of Dennis Kelly’s UTOPIA series 1 (2013) for Kudos and Channel 4. In 2013 he directed the final ever episode of MISFITS, which lead to him to become lead director on BBC3's supernatural series TATAU in 2014. The show was set in the Cook Islands, written by Richard Zajdlic and co-produced by Touchpaper TV (Being Human) and South Pacific Pictures for BBC Three in association with BBC America.

Last year he directed on series 3 of SALEM in the US as well as on the BBC3 DOCTOR WHO spin-off show CLASS and Bravo's dark-comedy IMPOSTERS. This year he directed on series 10 of DOCTOR WHO and series 2 of PREACHER for AMC.
