Over the last 6 years since my education in film and creative media began, I have had the opportunities to work on some incredible sets, filmed in some beautiful countries and have worked with a huge variety of talented individuals. Not only have I learned so much from experience but I have adapted a fearless attitude towards film and I always strive to go the extra mile to find a story to focus on. My passion and enthusiasm led me into the depths of Manchester's music scene which since has enabled me to build secure networks there and opened doors to other projects away from the music scene.
I would love to embrace more opportunities where I can get a hands on experience within the film industry as I am a keen learner who consistently pushes myself to achieve more. I would like to make high quality productions and content that can reach a worldwide demographic. During 2016 I began setting up my own freelance business which was a platform for new talent and a documentation of culture. My main ambition is to create content with a purpose so to actively use my camera as a voice, I particularly work with the documentary genre as I am interested in representing reality.
Through years of practise I have also discovered my passion for editing. I love the way a film comes together and starts to solidify as a production, this has contributed to my interest in promotional work for brands, businesses, events and artists. With shorter films you can apply a more experimental approach which captivates people's short attention spans.

My interests are wide and diverse ranging from sports to music, to the complexity of societies structures, animals and endangered species, social injustice, travelling, telling people's stories, the natural world, immersing in culture and experiencing new things.
Spending a lot of time working in the music industry has given me a passion for the evolving scene and I thoroughly enjoy working with a variety of different musicians and artists. My passion will always be with people, culture and the natural world however I am always looking for new challenges and aim to push the boundaries with what I can achieve. I am always willing to learn new things and value myself on being motivated and experimental with my practise.
