About me
I am a freelance Filmmaker, specializing in documentaries and social impact films, with a focus on themes of culture, identity, global scenes, climate change, and social justice. With my extensive experience, I have created first-class content for a variety of clients and platforms, producing compelling videos that can quickly engage an audience. I have worked on films in demanding environments across Europe, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, Ethiopia, and South America, demonstrating my creativity and ability to think on my feet. My work includes two UK short films with over 1 million views on YouTube, raising awareness on marginalised communities fighting against discrimination in Kenya, capturing families fighting for justice after losing loved ones in the Ethiopian/Boeing airplane crash, highlighting the lives of professional football players in Nigeria, and producing a documentary series that followed an award-winning filmmaker as he travelled 7000 miles from the UK to Chile fossil-fuel free, to give a voice to young climate activists at the UN climate summit. I strongly believe in the power of films to effect positive change and I am passionate about the work that I do.
