About me

 

Currently freelancing in the art of Videography and Motion Graphics, assuming responsibilities for companies such as WGSN, Mr Porter, Aretkl Group and many more. I have extensive experience in my field, having worked for prestigious advertising festivals such as Cannes Lions, Dubai Lynx, Eurobest, and Spikez Asia. I love all aspects of production and don’t necessarily specialise in one, I take on roles from Pre to Post production. My persistence to push myself on every role or responsibility has resulted in my lasting mark in everything I have produced. This incredible opportunity has allowed me to gain international exposure in my current industry, aiding to my love of travelling, exploring different cultures and gaining different perspectives. I've always had a huge interest for being involved in all aspects of media. In 2009, I developed my first YouTube Channel which saw a significant growth of subscribers within the first year, launching my obsession with developing my technical skills through something I love. Gaining a fan base of over 10,000 subscribers within such a short time truly allowed me to expose my technical skills and experience, and most especially my personal qualities. Being an extrovert has allowed me to flourish in business situations where confidence is critical and showcase my creative personality to the public and those around me. Whilst my background lies in producing work behind the scenes, my energetic enthusiasm is well-suited in front of the camera. I love keeping a record of all aspects of my life, wether it be through film or through pictures I love to document and keep a visual timeline for future inspiration in my work. I travel a lot and find this to be my biggest inspiration in my work, In 2015 I traveled through 10 different countries most being around Asia, I believe I am a well cultured individual with an incredible amount of stories to tell, this has helped hugely as I have a variety of styles and chose not to stick to one as I am forever evolving in my field. I believe that I've been blessed with amazing opportunities which I've made the most of, I take great pride in what I produce and love when I contribute to great things. I'd love to be given the chance to try new and different things and hope that my past experience can prove for a reliable and ambitious individual that can make a great difference in any opportunity on offer.
