About me
Hello, I’m Kiran – a multi-disciplined creative professional based in East London with a passion for artistic expression. With almost five years of experience in conceptualising, directing, filming, photographing and editing for numerous clients in the music, corporate and fashion industry. Bringing together inspirations to lead and expedite content creation. I have a knack for pushing all visions to end-points and opening doors to innovative notions. With self-driven original ideas, brainstorming in a strong team is where I thrive. I aim to expand further as an entrepreneur and progressively create successes for all around me, in any opportunity which I am a part of.
