Initially I trained as a stills photographer shooting several photo-documentaries in India, Cuba, and in Spain, where I produced a series of photographs on 'La Cultura de Toros' (The Culture of Bullfighting). After studying for a BA in Contemporary Media at the University of Westminster I went on to train in 16mm cinematography at the Northern Film School in Leeds where I achieved an MA in Film Production. I wrote my dissertation on Chinese Cinematography. My passion is Africa and so consequently I have filmed documentaries in Nigeria, Togo, Benin, Senegal, Ghana and Uganda. Hence I have considerable experience and knowledge of working in West Africa.

Working for such national organisations like First Light and Mediabox I lead and mentor youth video projects enabling young people to make their own films.
