I joined LSBU in 2017, where I am the MA Editing and Post Production Course Director and BA in Film and TV Practice Editing Pathway Leader.

I originally graduated in Fine Art and Critical Theory with a BA from Goldsmiths College, then completed a PgDip in Independent Film Production at the University of Cardiff and in 2019 a MSc in Social and Cultural Anthropology at UCL.

I started my career in film production, as production assistant and assistant director, later focusing on editing drama and documentaries. Running my own company, l produced, directed and edited film projects for several clients.

Coming from an art and experimental film background, I also trained in scriptwriting and performance, completing several courses at the Script Factory and a year-long Meisner technique acting training in 2015 with Scott Williams, at the Impulse Company.

In my work I have always been interested in exploring and pushing format boundaries. While at art school I transformed my drawings and paintings into sculptural pieces. While my video work, though displayed through tv screens, was situated over highly reflective surfaces so as to be reflected and replicated outside of the boundaries of the screen.

With my latest project, I aim to explore the crossing of boundaries between art, drama and documentary formats.

For this I am using video projection mapping to create a multiscreen piece. The work draws from auto-ethnographic research around recurrent themes of women’s experience of patriarchal oppression and it will be accompanied by research on the nature of the kinetic experience of making artworks and thinking through the body.

Over the years my artworks and films have been exhibited in the UK and abroad, as part of film festivals and art exhibitions. These have included: Alpe Adria Cinema in Italy, Hamburg Film Festival, Bergen International Festival and Randomize UK and Taiwan touring art exhibition.

For several years, I ran a small production company and produced corporate and educational videos for Community Service Volunteers (now called Volunteering Matters) The Digital Arts Centre in Tottenham (no longer active), CONEL (The College of North East London), Haringey Arts Council, Factory 21, Mouth That Roars Productions.

I am currently a British Film Editors association member and volunteer governor and Co-Vice Chair. Responsible for the organisation of the BFE mentoring scheme.
