From growing up in Watford, a hub of the creative industries, I discovered a passion for creating film, as well as writing about it. I attended West Herts College where I gained a diploma in Creative Media Production, and finished a BA in Film Studies at London South Bank University, with a 1:1 grade.
A keen writer, I found a fondness for non fiction and journalism, which led to me joining The 405 as a content creator, and then the editor of the Film section. During my time with The 405 I had the honour of attending both London Film Festival and Raindance Film Festival, along with interviewing John Carroll Lynch, and a personal hero of mine, John Waters.
From here, I devoted my time to my studies, finding passion in academic writing, and where journalism and can collide with that. My main field of interest is the connections between sexuality, gender, and technology, and I am currently working on a series of essays discussing these issues in relation to film.
I have experience of shooting music videos, adverts, documentaries and short films. I have particular interests in directing and cinematography, but am familiar with lighting and sound equipment, and editing software.
I have worked with companies such as The LP Cafe and Wired Productions to create photographic and moving image elements for PR campaigns – including a recent trip to Volterra, Tuscany, to shoot content for the promotion of the critically acclaimed independent game, The Town of Light.
