Connecting people through visual stories.

I’m a content creator and producer on paper, but I don’t just find stories, shoot photos and videos, edit, produce and write words. A deep passion for connecting people through stories drives everything I do.

My work at the Guardian on the news community team and Instagram’s flagship community team cultivated an approach to telling stories in new and experimental ways, always through a community lens, with impeccable journalistic practices. 

If you are a potential client, take a look at what I can do for you below, and then say hey!

Creative production

I produce photo, video and live stories for mobile, remotely, in-house or on location.

I plan editorial series and projects for social media channels; for one-off projects, events, campaigns, exhibitions, festivals and series. I create content ideas, creative briefs, timelines and publishing schedules, cross-functional checklists and implement frameworks to make things happen.

I work with existing social media and marketing teams to ensure all creative is delivered on time and to the best possible standards, being quick to change track or eliminate hold ups, and knowing the tools, tricks and industry best-practise to bring to the job.

I collaborate with a healthy network of top content creators globally to make projects are world-class, and can embed quickly with in-house creative teams. I share my learnings and expertise with teams as I go, aiming to leave you with the tools to continue. Creating and understanding communities is backbone to everything I do.

I’m an independent worker with initiative and drive to see through ambitious, ambiguous or experimental editorial projects from start-to-finish; including ideation, story planning, execution and post-production.

I can create production systems and workflows for new editorial projects, and can train in-house social producers on the job to enhance their work going forward.


Visual storytelling

I shoot and edit photos, video and live for mobile audiences and global communities on location.

I interview and write stories about people, projects, exhibitions and events for short-form editorial outputs.

I create shortform visual content (including photos, videos, + text) as well as live content from events, locations or experiences.

I experiment with new tools, understand new tricks and navigate the influencer network so you don't have to.
