About me

Passionate filmmaker and visual creative that thrives on creating stunning content and visuals for brands and businesses. With an in-depth knowledge of still and moving-image mediums, I consider all the aspects of the full production process. 10 years of professional experience, working with start-ups, medium companies, large multinationals and as an independent freelancer. Over the last 4 years, I have specialised in creating content for the architecture, engineering and construction industries specifically long-term time-lapse and corporate video production. I am seeking a position where I can contribute my experience and continue to work on engaging content. I am interested in clever art direction, embracing new technologies and innovative production techniques.

      • The primary focus of my role was the production and filming of client videos. I mostly carried out self-directed, solo shoots on location. When necessary, I’d film alongside other freelancers and took direction from other creative teams. The secondary aspect of my role was the post-production of the captured content following a brief from the production manager and client. The third aspect of my role was maintaining stakeholder client relationships; ensuring all of their creative requirements were met and delivered on time. Creation and editing for 360° immersive video content for VR experiences and interactive videos.
