About me
I am a North London-based photographer and coordinator with a passion for documentary photography and community engagement. My charity experience dates back to volunteering at a local Leeds youth club as a teenager and supporting a plant-based community kitchen in Hackney during university, before completing a third sector graduate scheme at a housing association in London. My creative practice and freelance career have led to some great opportunities and experiences such as supporting a graffiti artist with her social media, creating campaigns for a PR company and working with a photo studio in Tottenham to facilitate photography workshops for young people who have left mainstream education. After spending the last two years working with two lottery-funded, community-led projects in North London, I joined The Photography Foundation in April to support their training programme and community outreach activities.
