About me

I live to tell stories; moving or not in every sense of the word. On the never ending pursuit of knowledge, I want to never be or know just one thing. I am a filmmaker and photographer speialising in documentary and research, with the ability to plan, film, edit and design many types of projects. I am highly proficient in all types of camera operation and both video and photo editing. An explorer with an insatiable appetite for new stories, ideas and experiences, I excelled in my BA in Film Production, and then went on to specialise in an MA in Visual Anthropology, in which I used my skills as a practical filmmaker alongside anthropological practices of fieldwork to develop the ability to find stories, connect with people, and carry out independent research projects to create films and photographic essays from start to finish. I have worked in Social Research, creating film and video projects telling unheard stories, and currently head up the motion department in an insight agency, where I focus on creating and improving the video offer, creating films for qual research and Culture & Trends projects, motion graphics for ad-hoc projects and marketing content for the agency.
