I'm a young filmmaker who primarily works as a DoP, but I often end up performing more roles than just that on projects. I'm reliable, determined and love collaboration. Listening to others and combing ideas to create something greater than any one person can achieve is what I think make films special. I'm always eager to get stuck into a project and to meet and work with new people.

This poetry short film captures all the wonderful moments we associate with summer, juxtaposed with a bit of a cynical view of those small things that can ruin a moment.

BA (hons) English Language and Creative WritingLancaster University

On the English Language side of my degree, I study modules such as 'Language and Advertising', 'Understanding Media', and 'Corporate Communication' to name a few, which focused on marketing and advertisements giving me a deeper understanding as to how to effectively build and market a brand. This knowledge has become invaluable to me in my current career creating video marketing campaigns for businesses.
