  • Location: Cambridge, UK
  • Career stage: Early
  • Freelancer: Available

After graduating from the University of Gloucestershire with a 2:1 in film production,  I had found my passion for cinematography and started out a camera trainee. After a year I found that I was deeply interested in the lighting side of things. 

Since then, I have worked as a spark on a number of shorts, features, commercials and music videos and worked freelance in several lighting rental houses where I've become familiar with a large range of kit. 

I'm certified in Bs7671: 18th edition Wiring Regulations and currently studying for my Level 2 Electrical Installation.

I have a full and clean driving license and Transport. Eager to travel
