Aloha

I was a videographer by hobby now I'm studying filmmaking to become a storyteller. 

I'm very directed at the thought of creating a career out of a hobby, it seems like a great idea to turn something you enjoy already into a full-time occupation.

passionate in creating content, in terms of camera operating and video editing - I love filming at radio, so much that I volunteer my skills on a regular basis to document sets & turn around edits, what do I get back from it? Experience & great energy (NRG). 

One of my proudest moments was reaching a milestone with a team that I ran YouTube channel with, we hit over half a million views in the span of under two years - I was in charge of videography & social media handling.

I'm very interested in entering the TV/Film industry, I'm not 100% sure on what I want to do but there are a few select roles in between production & post-production that I've got my eye on, being  a camera operator & video editor is two of them

In 2016 I want to continue working at radio whilst exploring post-production in particular editing & VFX

Update: it's 2019 and since graduating from Kingston college studying an access course in media, I've landed a place on filmmaking course in Leeds Art Uni - I couldn't be happier, for the time being, I'm continuing to progress in editing and cinematography and hopefully I'll be an Avid certified by the years end.
