Disegno & HERO
I am passionate about story telling, finding, exposing and sharing the world through journalism with print and film as the medium. I have worked with prestigious companies such as Disegno and Hero Magazine and have interviewed upcoming stars such as Matt Maltese and Florence Pugh as well as established names like Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.
Although my portfolio doesn't necessarily display it, I am very enthusiastic about the role of film within journalism. I was elected as Multimedia Editor for an alumni magazine and multimedia within journalism is where I hope to take my career.

Dame Zaha Hadid was recognised as one of the world's most influential architects, her buildings defied classification and even gravity.
