About me
I am a Luton/Surrey based creative in Photography, Directing, and Writing. I currently study English with Creative Writing at Royal Holloway University. I have a slight obsession for theatre and musicals and I go crazy for anything Marvel. I'm looking for more experience in the creative field and potential collabs with more creatives.
  • Venus
    VenusInspired by William Shakespeare's play, Venus and Adonis, is this experimental self-portrait project taken by myself during isolation. It's a journey of understanding the regal aspect of the name Venus as associated with the Greek goddess as well as the raw sensual character that Shakespeare creates in his play.
  • Industrial vs Culture

  • 'Grown Up' - Short Film
    'Grown Up' - Short FilmFunded by Kusini Productions, 'Grown Up' is a stylistic short film about a group of friends who meet up at the end of summer to watch a montage of themselves that their creative friend Abby makes. It's a reminiscent and nostalgic film about the simple fun of teens before they transition into adults. It also presents a more positive perception of the black British culture in London.
