About me
I am a freelance Filmmaker, specialising in documentaries and social impact films, exploring themes of culture, identity, global scenes, climate change and social justice. I have experience creating first class content for a variety of clients and platforms. My experience has taught me to think on my feet and create compelling videos that can quickly engage an audience. I have worked on films in Europe, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, Ethiopia and South America, in demanding environments where I have demonstrated that I am a creative self starter. I have worked on two UK short films that have over 1 million views on Youtube. I have raised awareness on marginalised communities as they fight against years of discrimination in Kenya. I captured families fighting for justice after losing loved ones in the Ethiopian/ Boeing airplane crash. Highlighted the life of professional football players in Nigeria. Produced 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 believe that films can change the world and I love the work that I do!
