MA Wildlife filmmaking || Zoology || Camera | Story| Research | Drone Pilot | Sound I am a 23 year old bilingual Zoologist and wildlife filmmaker with a passion for storytelling and science. I’ve always been fascinated and curious about the natural world around me since I was young and graduated with a degree in Zoology (1st class) from the University of Leeds. Also a recent MA Wildlife Filmmaking graduate in Bristol, (affiliated with the BBC NHU), I now work as a freelance camera operator and researcher, currently as a Researcher for Wild Metropolis (blue chip mini landmark series) and previously on Planet Earth 2 and Blue Planet 2 digital at the BBC. I am trained in all areas of the film industry including producing, pitching, presenting, sound, colour grading and editing. ​ I also produced two factual radio programmes, Weekly wildlife Watch and the Travel Talk Show on LSRfm, as well as a blog. I've been fortunate enough to conduct 10 months of research on bats, travel to staggeringly beautiful places, and learn how to cave and rock climb during my 3 years as an undergraduate. Recently I travelled to Kenya filming the Ivory Burn and the human-wildlife conflict with lions in Meru for the 50th anniversary of the Born Free Film, my short film was nominated for a student BAFTA award in LA. Please feel free to email me: I look forward to your message!
