About me

I am a Cinematographer with 5 years experience in the Industry as well as a BA in Film and Television Production from the Northern Film School. I have worked with multiple global brands such as VICE, Microsoft, ASDA, Hyde and Sleep, Royal British Legion. I recently had a short documentary aired on BBC3 as well as a short spoken word film shown at the Tate Britain as part of the Queer British Artists Exhibition. In addition to my filmmaking work, I have been building up a portfolio of photography including editorials and street photography. I recently had my first exhibition called Foreign Lands in Old Street.
