About me
Started video creating when I was in college studying media and film studies. Once I moved to London for an apprenticeship at EMI music, that's when I advanced my skills in editing programs and DSLR cameras. After that I work on a couple of TV/Film sets and spent a few years gaining more experience and confidence. Over the years I have gained runner skills, working with a range of cameras, data ingesting. So my repertoire since coming to London has really grew and has built up my industry knowledge. I even did bar work to keep money coming in, but mainly to improve my communicational skills. Which I do feel I lacked when I first moved to London. After three years of living independently in London I decided I would go to university as I wanted personal time to advance my creativity in filmmaking. At Kingston university I was really knowledgeable already. Thanks to that I was able to experiment with new things, particularly animation which became a focal point in most of my projects. This time away has now focused my goals and I now know where I would like to go in my career, creatively and professionally. Now I see myself as a more well rounded individual who is better prepared to take on the professional environment.

    Kingston upon Thames, United KingdomFull Time
    Worked in pubs part time while I was studying and I am very thankful as my time working there. Serve food and drinks and since I was experienced and trustworthy I was able to be on shift floor without the need of a manager. Pub experience has given me the communicational skills I lacked when I first moved to London. This experience prepared me for any job in my chosen industry and the importance of listening and speaking clearly. Furthermore being conscientious in your job and showing that extra care to customers.

    BA (Hons) FilmmakingKingston University

    An art filmmaking course to help push and explore my creativity further; I needed more time in education to explore my options and skills. Here I was introduced to animation techniques that was in my capability and became a focal point in many of my projects. My time here gave me more creative freedom as a director of photography and even directing my own films. This time has given me the confidence I needed to go into the professional environment.
