Since then, I've created films & photos for music artists such as Fat Boy Slim, Galantis, Route 94, Krept & Konin, Witt Lowry, High Contrast, Gang of Youths and more, including my work being published in Mixmag. As well as this, I've been employed by Europes' largest social media agency, where I've created videos for influencers such as Caspar Lee, Fun For Louis, Deliciously Ella, Ben Francis, Levi Roots and Gerard Adams. Before this, I freelanced in Australia as a one-man-band videographer, where I created videos for travel companies, festivals and behind the scenes of films.
