About me

I’m currently residing in South London and working as a photographer, curator and lecturer – whilst studying a masters degree in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography.

Having spent my early twenties working in the emergency services, I started self-employed in 2019, whilst undertaking a bachelors degree in Photography. I now volunteer as a Trustee for a charity, but also as a mental health and wellbeing advocate – following my PTSD diagnosis.
