What to say about me...


I'm just a 25 year old guy from South England. Nothing too special to report.

 I had a sterling childhood and great and straightforward life until I left the UK in February 2011 to travel for 7 months before starting University. Before leaving my life seemed all too nice and straightforward; after this galavant I would return to study Mechanical Engineering at Southampton and had a scholarship to become an officer in the army after that. But I was far too busy living in the present to worry about all that future stuff…

But... The almighty but!

Starting my studies at Southampton with a newly acquired traveller's afro and hippy ideals (it took me about 2 months to start wearing socks again!), I found it hard to blend into the sea of shaven heads and short back and sides of my fellow army cadets; on top of that my course was far from resonating with me. This set in motion a deep underbubbling of uncertainty about my future.

Equipped with the energy and confusion of a 20 year old, coupled with the ardent pursuit of efficiency shared by so many of my fellow first year engineers, I set about demanding of myself that I know exactly what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, to best allocate my resources and towards whatever it was. Meanwhile everyone around me; friends from home and at university, just seemed to be getting on with it- was I making a fuss over nothing?! Alas this naive and unanswerable question prompted the start of my long, meandering and somewhat unconventional route through the higher education system. Now after 5 years, having changed universities 4 times all told in this goal's pursuit, I'm happy to report that I have FINALLY FINISHED my degree of Arts & Sciences at UCL- the degree for people who don't know specifically what they want to do, but like and are interested in everything- figures!

Now, like The Shining's Johnny opting for the most eccentric route through a door, I too am slowly breaking into the ever broad industry of media in my own way; finding that it's where I'd like to lay my hat, at least for the moment...

This is where this website comes in! 

 

As good old Steve Jobs said;

‘“If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.”

 

Now that's real talk Steve. These sentiments may well have put me through the mangle a bit in my early 20's, but I'm glad they did, as now I know I'm never going to settle for things I'm not happy with.  


I've created this website to celebrate my leap into the unknown freelance realm; to hopefully attract jobs that warm my cockles and slowly create a body of work that I'm proud of.

 

If I had to name my main interests, I'd say I'm passionate about the environment (the day after tomorrow will happen-change your ways!); I love travel, adventure, the outdoors, extreme sports, music and photography. The newest addition to this extensive club being filmmaking.


If you like what I do, or have any ideas (or job opportunities!) for me, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
