I am an artist filmmaker whose interests have included; the relationship between online presence and real experience, how digital communication affects human consciousness and, recently, how notions of utopia, myth and imagined worlds inform our social ideals.
I am fascinated by the process of film editing, and the endless potential it has to forge meaning by deconstructing the unity of time and the way in which this can be used to create unique experiences.
My aim is to create moving image works that tell unique stories which produce intense, hypnotic, and, at times, hallucinatory experiences.
I have been working as an artist working with film and the moving image since 2015 after previously working as a promotional content filmmaker. My art work before 2015 focused on live digital media performance combining video, sound and physical performance.
Born 1981 in Watford, lives and works in St Albans, England.
