Making Creativity Work
Production Safety Passport

I’m a junior creative, currently working in video production and photography, with a focus on gastronomy. My work isn’t just my 9-5, in my spare time I produce Recipe Rewind, an online factual entertainment show about the history of food, with a viewership upwards of ten thousand.

My work ethos has never shied away from the idea of development, whether it be personal, professional, or for the organisation I work for, and it has been this way since I started working in media almost a decade ago, my first position of managing a youth charity’s magazine. A decade on from that role, I have graduated from the BFI National Academy at the National Film and Television School in Screenwriting, with my films having toured around the UK, Europe, and the USA.
