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 a National Geographic project at Off The Fence films. I have also worked on BBC documentaries, 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.
