    About me

    I picked up a 8mm camcorder at the age of 12 and have been filming ever since. I am self-taught and have years of experience in filming and editing. I love the medium of film because it can capture something that we don't notice unless we are really mindful, so it is in effect a kind of mindfulness. I am also an actor and I think that being interested in both sides of the camera complements both my role as a videographer and actor.

    Additional Information

    I am based in Brighton and I am a self-taught videographer. I have been doing travel videography and documentary-style videos for a number of years.

    I am self-taught in both Final Cut and Adobe Premiere, and I learn new software very quickly. My experience with equipment includes: DJI Phantom 4 drone, Panasonic GH5 with a Zhiyun Crane gimbal, Panasonic Lumix LX100, Zoom H1 audio recorder with Rode lavalier mic, Rode VideoMic Pro, amongst other equipment.

    My other related experience includes working at an affiliate marketing start-up company in London.

    I am creative, hard-working, reliable, and a quick learner. I am also an actor, a piano player and I speak several languages.
