Whilst in my final year I gained experience as an art dept assistant on Danny Boyle’s channel 4 show Babylon which developed my interest in the art department. Since university I have had jobs working as a prop maker in theatre, film and for window display with companies such as John Lewis and Sainsburys. I have a natural talent for content creation and have extensive experience in producing short form documentary and promotional content for platforms such as Dazed Digital and Boiler Room. As well as promotional and educational content creation for fashion brands(workshops, photography, Instagram/Facebook videos) My experience brings fresh perspectives to my creative work as well as informing my practice through varied and well developed skills.
