About me
Hey there, Nice to meet you, I'll keep this short. I'm an experienced Video Producer with a background in factual and commercial digital media.

Aside from visual content creation, I have also worked in adult social care, event production and festival curation. I am currently based in London producing short-form factual content for a well-known publisher. Let's meet for a coffee! Ross --
