I am a 25-year-old natural history and wildlife film researcher, based in Bristol, UK, having grown up in south-west London. After graduating from the University of Bristol in Zoology, I spent a year gaining work experience and making my own short films (back then, on a Nikon DSLR) in an attempt to further my knowledge of the industry and gain experience. In June 2018, I was accepted on to the University of the West of England MA in Wildlife Filmmaking, a prestigious course that runs in academic partnership with the BBC’s Natural History Unit. I completed this course in October 2019, having produced my student film The Housecats.
I am now an award-winning independent filmmaker, currently working as a Natural History Documentary Researcher on an ambitious project at True to Nature. I have also worked for the BBC, Off The Fence BV, and Oak Island Films, as well as independently produced commissioned films for organisations such as the Bristol Natural History Consortium.
Other opportunities I have had include volunteering for Heal Rewidling, sourcing video for social media campaigns; curating a ‘Wildlife Room’ for the London Mountain Film Festival 2020; and volunteering at Wildscreen Festival 2018.
