About me

As a creative and highly-motivated individual, I enjoy thinking innovatively and originally on new or existing ideas. I have a background in development and research for factual television and documentary and have worked on independent fiction shorts. Alongside this, I have a personal interest for self shooting compelling documentaries on real life modern day subjects that are a gateway to wider socio-political issues.
