About me
I’m a filmmaker, photographer and all-rounder explorer & lover of life. Passionate about faces, places and the stories they hold, my mantra is to put the narrative back into the hands of the people who are seldom given a voice.

My work aims to reflect, represent and inspire its viewers through true and aspirational storytelling. I work in: documentary, factual entertainment & development Available for local/international commissions. London based.
