About me

 

I use film, photography, text and music to create content and tell stories. I am a Filmmaker, Journalist and Copywriter with an MA (Merit) in Documentary Film from the University of the Arts London and a 2:1 BA (Hons) in Journalism from the University of Leeds. I'm currently working as the Head of Content for KLEEK, a nightlife startup in London. I'm also working as a Communications and Editorial Assistant for the Student Enterprise and Employability department of University of the Arts London (UAL) and as a Social Media Officer for UAL Commonplace. I've worked as a Journalist with articles published in national and regional press. I have also freelanced as a Copywriter for a range of clients. I have a made a number of short documentaries. I can shoot, edit and direct independently and as part of a crew. I use my journalistic skills to find a story and my filmmaking nuance to visualise and carve out a narrative. I want to work creatively to produce content using different media.
