Born in 1994, I live and work in Manchester.
I use video, sound and socially engaged participatory processes to unpick the complexity of the human condition by observing isolated or overlooked communities and the landscape that contains them; specifically when memory or nostalgia informs an important part of that place.
My short documentaries have screened at London Institute of Contemporary Arts, Sheffield Doc/Fest, HOME and British Shorts Berlin.
In 2017 I was awarded the Deutsche Bank Award for Creative Enterprise in Film for my pitch to explore the rise of conflict tourism in working class residential areas of Belfast, Northern Ireland. In 2021, this finished short documentary was acquired by the BFI National Archive for long-term preservation.
In 2015, I graduated from Manchester School of Art with a First-Class Honours in BA Filmmaking and received an MRes scholarship in 2017 for postgraduate research study into the The Ashleigh Hotel, a former guest house in the working class holiday resort of Blackpool and it’s long term residents. Both my degree films screened at HOME, a major centre for contemporary visual arts in Manchester, UK and my undergraduate film, Resort, won the Royal Television Society North West Student Award (Documentary) in 2016.
I also work as a freelance audio producer in specialist music radio.
