About me

I am an experienced filmmaker and digital content producer, with a specific passion for non-fiction media and creative shorts/ music videos. Having recently graduated from my MA in Documentary Filmmaking, I am now looking for work and/ or placements in the industry so I can kickstart my career and further develop my skills and understanding of the production process. I am mostly interested in roles as a camera operator, researcher, and videographer, however I am open to any opportunities that offer industry experience and a chance to learn and develop my skills. I have approximately 3 years of professional experience in video content production, using pro camcorders (Sony X70, Sony NX5, Sony PMW-200), DSLR’s (Nikon D7000), lighting equipment, and various mics and audio equipment. For post-production, I use Adobe Creative software and the DaVinci Resolve editing program. I have now worked on four documentaries, and have worked alone (Painting Over Paintings) as well as in small production groups. I am also experienced in filming live music and performing arts events, as well corporate events and weddings. As well as my filming and editing skills, I have further experience as a creative director, social media assistant, journalist, and PR representative.
