I would like to explore opportunities in the creative industries as well as use the analytical and technical skills I developed during my physics degree. I am a highly analytical and creative thinker with a keen interest in visual arts and culture. In particular I have explored my own creative projects in film, photography, documentary, radio and events production. I am naturally inquisitive, and took the opportunity to deepen my understanding of our society, history and philosophy through optional modules during my technical training as a physicist. I am open to all kinds of work and would love to collaborate on photography/film projects whilst I look for my next full-time opportunity.
