                                                                               ABOUT


My inspiration stems from three, lifelong obsessions - anthropology, sound and nature. 
I explore these themes by  experimenting with both digital and analogue processes. In 2015, 
I qualified as an HSE Commercial Diver for filming underwater and completed a diploma in 
Marine Biology, in order to deal with my addiction to the ocean. Before focusing on film 
and photography, I trained and worked as a performance designer and animator. 
I love telling stories and creating connections using all the experience behind me 
and taking risks into the unknown. In both solo and collaborative art projects,  
I always aim to create an interaction between the audience and the artwork.

MY WHYS & HOWS


After a long winded journey that began from hand drawn animation and stage design, I ended up finding my voice through the mediums of film and photography, 10 years ago. 
I fell in love with the process, the experience and the collaborations that occur when using these lens based mediums.  
The connection and trust between either clients or collaborators is what fuels my passion - there is no hierarchy when it comes to 
creating work that is personal, emotional and artistic. Everyone is involved in creating the final outcome.
There is always a plan... Always. But you've got to stay tuned to the moment - experimenting and improvising on the spot 
is where a lot of the magic happens and that's what I'm devoted to - capturing moments. 
Both my backgrounds in scenography and animation feed and strengthen my ways of working and I am always strongly guided by sound and music.
