Born and raised in London (UK), I graduated from Goldsmiths College, University of London with a First Class Hons in Media & Communications - Film Fiction. Having initially begun my career as a photographer, I later discovered my passion for the art of moving images and decided to explore the art of video making along side photography. Based between London and Istanbul, my client portfolio include vintage fashion labels such as Prangsta and Gecko as well as music video work for globally acclaimed Dubstep bands Zeds Dead and DirtyPhonics (Mad Decent / Dim Mak Records) commissioned by UKF, Bristol based Dubstep musician Phaeleh (Black Acre/Hardlivings), Milano based electronic musician Seth (Skint Records) and a Film Short based M/V for French rap artist Sinik (Six-O-Nine). I have also taken-up a variety advertorial work for brands such as Brutus Trimfit, Häagen-Dazs, Turkish Airlines and Vodafone as well as documentary productions commissioned by Al-Jazeera and MTV. I currently work as a freelancer moving between London/UK and Istanbul/Turkey.

'Full circle, from to tomb of the womb to the womb of the tomb, we come' - Joseph Campbell Music video for French trip-hop artist Al'Tarba for his track 'Take Me Back' from his album 'Let The Ghosts Sing'. Woven together with the use of found footage from the musician's own childhood, the video is an avant-grade piece of visual poetry - an ode to the human condition and the memories that shape us.
Shortlisted at the UK Film Festival 2017, Tim is presented in three acts, and narrated by a witty omnipresent voice of wisdom. Our protagonist is projected onto a void space that denotes his isolation, despite all of his efforts to make his mark in society, as demonstrated by cuts to the various urban landscapes and characters he interacts with.

I was the founder and editor of an online quarterly Film and Photography Magazine F.64 during my time at University.
