Director/DoP, Photographer & Poet

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Expert
  • Freelancer: Available

I'm a freelance director, cinematographer, photographer and poet based in East London. Very interested in short films, documentary, music videos and commercial content.

I enjoy telling the stories of the people and places through visual creativity. I love connecting both of these things in uninterrupted or forced ways. 

I've got a huge appetite for travel, education, creativity and collaboration and I'm always up for challenges and adventures.

Clients include Google, VO5, Expedia, Vapiano, Kodak, Sony Music and more. Countries I've worked in: Cuba, Israel, Nigeria, Gambia, South Africa, USA and the UK.

That being said, if you need me, just send a smoke signal.

Or email. That works too.

ScreenSkills tests passed.
