I am a documentary filmmaker using digital media to contribute to mobilizing for change. I’m currently working on themes of migration, conflict, and human rights. My projects are usually spread across different media formats including text, video art, film, and photography. I am very keen on using existing distribution platforms as storytelling channels.

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 am currently studying for a Masters in Documentary and Factual Film Production at 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, and Les Rencontres d’Arles.

I am a 2019 grant recipient from the National Geographic Society.
