About me
Some may call it nosiness, I call it curiosity. I like to observe - situations and people. Stories are my passion. I'm a creative video producer, filmmaker and photographer. I love creating visual content, tell stories through photography and video and use that to create a connection with others. Over the past 12 years, I've been working in various creative fields with a range of different responsibilities and tasks. My professional background includes "doing everything" at a small TV station, to camera work, video editing, motion design and animation and covering almost every aspect of video production.
  • Documenting refugee education in Greece
    Documenting refugee education in GreeceIn September 2018 I went to Greece to create a documentary about "Project Hope 4 Kids". The organisation offers education to refugee children, whose families arrived in Greece after fleeing their home countries, thanks to the support from sponsors such as INTO Giving.

    A day in the life of an international studentThis video project started in late 2016, where the objective was to show what the life of an international student in the UK and US looks like. To move away from a typical talking heads video or following someone around for 24hours, the idea was to script a story based on what the student would tell us their days looked like. We then captured parts of their day and created an inspiring and engaging series of videos to highlight different university pathways, courses, cities and nationalities.
  • long portrait
    long portraitA long portrait is an extended version of a portrait, lasting way more than a fracture of a second and is intended to show more of the true person behind the face itself. The intention behind the long portraits is to strip away the facade we want our surroundings to see. Standing in front of a camera, after a few seconds a face will inevitably relax and show micro expressions that can easily be hidden in the fleeting moment of a photograph. My long portraits are more than just simple portraits.
