About me

 

I am a BA Film Studies (First Class Honors) graduate pursuing a career in film and television producing, researching and writing. I am the recipient of both the Queen Mary University of London Principal’s Prize for Outstanding Academic Achievement as well as the Queen Mary University of London Film Studies Prize in 2015 and 2016. In 2014 I wrote and produced a short film as part of my study, Café Cliché. This was shortlisted and entered into the Queen Mary Living British Cinema Festival as part of the student short film competition. Following the competition Café Cliché was also screened at the Living British Cinema: Film’s Afloat event on Wednesday 4th of June 2014. My essay on the Russian film Leviathan (2014) is awaiting publication in the academic journal Film Matters and will appear in print early 2017.
