About me

I am a photographer and freelance producer. In November 2018 I completed a Masters in photography at the University of Arts London. I also have five years of work experience in the photography and advertising industries in roles such as integrated production, art buying, creative production and stills production working in London and internationally. I am familiar with working across multiple projects, campaigns and new business pitches running simultaneously. I specialise in print and stills production but also work across digital, activation, illustration and animation.
