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.
