About me

I am a passionate audiovisual story teller with strong leadership skills. I have graduated in media & communications with a first-class honours degree, specialising in filmmaking. I am currently finishing my master studies in film directing. I have worked in the film industry for more than five years mostly supervising the process of different feature films from the early development stage until their festival and commercial releasing. I am seeking a role in the UK audiovisual & creative industry that allows me to maximize my potential, combining my experience as a supervising producer with my artistic & creative skills.
