With a proven track record of bringing in business worth over £150,000, I am a passionate and tenacious person with deep knowledge on visual storytelling, strategy and creative content. My experience ranges from business development, creative strategy, partnerships to account management. Since September 2020 I have been working as a freelance photo agent and creative strategist for photographers, securing them commercial and editorial clients. From writing treatments, designing digital portfolios, lead research, outreach, liaising with clients, budgets and timelines, I have had a lot to do but I am now looking for a more permanent and secure role where I can bring my skills and talent to a new team. In past roles I have helped launch campaigns and produced shoots with; Wellcome Trust, Panasonic, Lucasfilm, Visit California, Adobe, Ecotricity, DJI, New York Times to name a few and a network of contacts within the creative agency and brand world. I care deeply about creating, producing and leading original and compelling creative initiatives from content campaigns to partnerships. Past managers have described me as having the rare skills of being a creative thinker whilst also being impactful on a business.

Schools across the country emptied and the streets and news screens were filled with passionate young voices, wanting to be heard by policy makers in the UK and around the world. Fast forward a year to 2020, there are no climate strikes on our streets and one thing occupies the headlines, COVID 19. The conversion of saving our planet might not be taking centre stage, but the resilienc
- Families of the ForceThe Rose Family The first family to take part in this project documenting Star Wars families in the UK is my own. I was first introduced to Star Wars the same time as my older sister. We both saw it with my mother and father when they original trilogy was re released in cinemas in the 90s. From the moment Darth Vader stepped onto the rebel ship, we were hooked and Star Wars has become a firm family favourite and tradition within our household. My father collected the Kenner Star Wars toys, w
- At Home with the DroidsNestled away in the South London there is a household of droids. The proud owner Jason has been building droids in his spare time to create screen accurate replicas of R2D2, BB8 a Trade Federation Droid and soon to take form, a pit droid. But these are no ordinary droids who live amongst us, they have a much deeper purpose. In 2010, Jason’s wife Tayo was given the devastating news her 15 year old brother Zac had been fatally stabbed.

London, United KingdomPart Time
Founder, Editor and Picture Editor. Darwin Magazine is a non-profit photography platform that champions storytelling and photographers that break the mould to take the medium to new places. We believe that compelling photography deserves a new home, one where it can challenge and inspire audiences around the world. Darwin was founded in 2011 on the back of a beer coaster in a pub in Cardiff by two photography students. Darwin’s goal was simple, to engage a global audience with photography without monetising off photographers. No paid to enter competitions or expensive issues, just powerful stories. With all the money from magazine sales going to the next printed issue and supporting photographers. Relaunched in 2020, Darwin Magazine is back to once again be a leading voice in contemporary photography.
