About me

Independent Filmmaker, Artistic Director and Co-Founder of the dog-loving publication, Mutt Magazine. Having graduated from Fashion Communication and Promotion with a High-Class Honours Degree in 2017 and spending two years living in Berlin, developing my craft as a visual storyteller; my work and experience spans from moving image and editorial design to concept curation and academic teaching. I have since moved back to London in search of the next step in my career. Often with a focus on themes of Love and Intimacy which frequently skew towards LGBTQ narratives, my work has been recognised for its distinctive visual and narrative styles. My recent projects ‘Homosexuality & The Heteronormative Lens’ and ‘Caravaggio’s Cupid’ are both intimate studies of what it means to be Gay in today's society and although both are different in their execution, they are visual testaments to the importance of queer identity in a forever evolving socio- digital landscape. I have been immersed in the visual first culture of today and worked across creative departments, both individually and collaboratively. I have gained invaluable experience in Creative Direction, Cinematography, Pre- and-Post Production. I believe it is the combination of both good design sense and imagination, sensitivity and diplomacy that has allowed me to conceptualise ideas and become the creative communicator I am today. creativity is storytelling and storytelling is what I do.
