I am a passionate storyteller and love to create and tell stories across all platforms from film, television, radio, theatre, social media and mobile phones to those platforms yet to be invented. I am passionate about telling stories if they are fiction or not.
At University I learnt many skills in directing and film production including camera and sound. At university I found my feet in documentary a genre I am extremely interested and comfortable in but also found interest in new ways to tell stories through mobile phones and social media platform.
I have worked on many projects in university including narrative short stories, documentaries and multi platform stories. I used my experiences from university to create promotional videos for businesses and documentaries outside of university.
Expected to graduate July 2015
I’ve always loved films from the first films I remember watching that captured my imagination (Star Wars and Toy Story) but it wasn’t until I watched Jaws while studying my English GCSE I first really started to consider films are created not just there and from that moment on I decided I wanted to make films and tell stories for a living and I’ve never looked back.
