    About me

    I am a lover of environmental, mountaineering and activist documentaries with an occasional sprinkling of criminology.

    I am constantly curious and introspective.

    After travelling to the Antarctic as a ten year old, I became fascinated in the natural environment, and in the stories it helps create. Not long after I started my degree in Film at Falmouth University, I discovered my love for production/location management, and research.

    These interests merge in documentary filmmaking, and inspired me to specialise and focus on that pathway.

    I am currently working on four documentaries:

    - Researcher on the environmental documentary short, 'Epoch'.

    - Assistant Producer on Behind The Waves; a music documentary in Cornwall.

    - Producer on 'Against the Current', a documentary exploring alternative living in Cornwall.

    - Director/Cinematographer on 'Astitva' (working title); a documentary focused on the trans experience in India.

    Currently working on 2 academic articles:

    - Cinemas Obsession with the Transgender Pathology: A Recipe for Liberation.

    - How Identity is disrupted/dismantled in the 'wilderness' of Latin American film.
