About me

 

I completed my BSc in Human Sciences at UCL in 2012 and my MSc in Science Media Production at Imperial College London in 2013. My interest in pursuing a career in communication developed during my undergraduate studies and I’ve always been in interested in filmmaking and storytelling. The MSc seemed like a natural fit and I’ve been writing and making videos and podcasts ever since.
