Unique traits: I have been working in broadcast media for 6 years now as a freelance lighting camera operator & sound recordist. Gaining during that time a wealth of experience in pre-production coordination, on set teamwork while working towards tight post-production deadlines. Having a very good work ethic I am meticulous and professional in bringing a clients vision to life. With a passionate love of film especially documentary it is my goal to produce my own profound and compelling documentary that highlights an everyday subject matter whilst revealing the hidden beauty that exists in the smallest everyday of moments.I am now moving into Directing and scriptwriting fictional narrative films and look forward to developing my career in this direction.
