    About me

    I made my first short stop frame animation at the age of 6 and became obsessed with all things film from that point. I converted my bedroom into a green screen studio and started my ‘Film Guy’ YouTube channel at 13, and began coercing family and friends to help make short films. I am now in my final year of a BA (Hons) in Film and Television Production.

    I am also an Alumni member of the Youth Advisory Council (UK) for ‘INTOFilm’ Channel 4’s Educational Service and was selected as an ambassador when I was 14 years old; I have been involved in their advertising campaigns and interviewing actors on the red carpet as an INTOFilm Ambassador and Alumni member.

    I am both artistically and technically minded, with a methodical approach to working and an eagerness to learn and develop personal skills in a practical setting. My longer-term aspiration is to be a part of the team that makes excellent productions

    Additional Information

    I am a Graduate in Film and Television Production from Edge Hill University and I am predicted a First/High 2:1 class honours degree. I have been working on my own and other’s short films since a very early age. I am a self-starter who is able to see what needs to be done and to act on priorities. I also enjoy collaborating with a team to work toward the end goal of creating a successful production. I am a consummate professional and work tirelessly to get the job done. I have been commended by several peers, lecturers and visiting professionals for my professionalism and dedication. I would love to bring my boundless energy and love of all things Television, Video and Film.

    I have also been an ambassador for INTOFilm since I was 14 years old and remain and Alumni member, I have also won a young film-makers competition in the INTOFilm/Channel 4 youth Film festival 18-21 year old category.

    I intuitively sort, cut and edit raw footage using the latest and most advanced tools, and have been doing this since I was 13 years old. I know how to read a brief and select the best pieces of footage to capture the look and feel you are trying to achieve. As a videographer, editor and working in production, I understand it is imperative to have the total comprehension of the Director’s and the executive Producer’s vision.

    I have a passion for American Football and would love to begin my career being involved in sports video production

    My dedication to my craft combined with my personality and work ethic make me an ideal candidate for the position in Television and Film.

    Please contact me by phone or email at your earliest convenience to set up an interview in order to further discuss my qualifications. I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your time.
