I produce video for weddings, business, and live events. I have worked with local business and charities to create video adverts for online and television broadcast and have recently worked with the BBC as a freelancer.  As well as video, I create motion graphics and audio based media.

In 2017, I returned to education to complete a full BA (Hons) degree in Media Arts with Plymouth University. Using my wealth of experience and moving image skills I was able to further my portfolio and forge links with other media professionals. During this time I was able to develop skills in storytelling and documentary filmmaking, helping to extend my video production knowledge and skills.

In 2010, I attend Deep Blue Sound, where I completed a Foundation Degree in Live Sound Engineering. Here I quirked the basic principles of sound engineering for live music, voice and event. I also began developing skills in sound manipulation and editing. Since completing the course I furthered these skills, entering the world of audio production with my video and music work.

As a Technical Demonstrator, my main duties include leading sessions on camera operation, editing practice and other post production elements. I teach photographic, video, audio and lighting theory and lead practical sessions to develop skills in cinematography.  Further to this I create learning material in the form of video and podcast production.
