Originally from Aberdeenshire Scotland, I was brought up with a love for wildlife. When studying MA Anthropology joint with Film and Visual Culture at the University of Aberdeen, I started to think more about how our worlds overlap and wanted nothing more than to make films about it.
I relocated to Bristol to do a postgraduate in Documentary at UWE and started doing just that. I self-shot my first short film, 'Red Sky on the Black Isle', that went on to show around the world in film festivals and scientific conferences, win an award and be translated into 3 different languages. Since then I have started working full time as a videographer and crowdfunded my latest half hour documentary film, 'Project Wolf', a half hour documentary on rewilding which is available to watch online for free in full.
I researched, developed, filmed and edited both of these films along with many more.
In 2020 I started the podcast 'Crimes Against Nature', a true crime nature podcast looking at wildlife crime. Season 1 is focusing on stories from the UK, and future seasons will look further afield. You can find out more about the podcast at www.crimesagainstnaturepod.com
I have two main slightly paradoxical interests - going outside and watching documentaries. I love to travel, usually orientated around seeing more of the natural world. This includes exploring more of the UK and the amazing British wildlife we are so lucky to have. When I can resist pressing record, I also enjoy photography and am near constantly listening to a podcast. In what other time I have I practice yoga, game, read and try and learn in any way I can.
Based in Edinburgh, I hope to continue creating content about our relationship with the natural world.
I'm currently working for the University of Edinburgh as the Media Production Lead for the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
