Working commercially as a Director, Photographer and Artist, my approach is focused on the belief that embracing new formats & tech can help us tell better stories. The combination of soft aesthetics with the tongue-in-cheek and hyperreal is always present.
With a background in Material Design plus an MA from London’s Royal College Of Art on Interactive Technology rather than Photography or Film training, I’m fortunate to have a unique outlook & knowledge that benefits the projects I work on.
I love working on pieces that involve under represented voices & aim to create space for conversation, critique, self expression and fun.
Based in East London UK I work, exhibit and talk Internationally.
