I work with film and photography with the aim of mobilizing for change. I’m interested in themes of identity, migration, conflict, and human rights.

My educational background is an LLB Law with International Relations degree from the University of Sussex and a Masters in International Public Policy from University College London. I currently live in Berlin and also have a Masters in Documentary Filmmaking from MetFilm School Berlin.

My film and photography projects have featured internationally, including at The International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam, Sheffield DocFest, Future of Storytelling NYC, Haus der Kulturen Welt, and Les Rencontres d’Arles.

I am a 2018 grant recipient from the National Geographic Society and a member of National Geographic’s 2020 Field Ready Program.
