Graduated in 2018 with a first in Film Practice at London South Bank University. Spent most of my university projects writing and directing, but realised whilst studying that writing is my true passion. I took a couple years off creating (mainly for financial fears) but now really want to dive head first into a new career. Currently writing a series and planning on writing a novel - not for a particular reason yet just trying to keep my creative juices flowing!
