About me

I am a self-motivated, adaptable and creative individual with a history of shooting content for commercial adverts, events and promotional social media posts. My ability to create innovative concepts, shoot quality content as well as being detail focused are some of my most valuable qualities. Additionally, I have a strong technical ability, which I developed during my degree and have further established working on freelance projects across the last 3 years. My current aim is to secure a full-time position filming and editing, which will provide me with an opportunity to progress my career further.
