Tell us about your background
I'm a documentary filmmaker based in London. Over the past years I have worked for a range of charities, theatres and arts organisations and with vulnerable people such as young homeless, the elderly, amputee and mental health patients. My most recent film “St Helena, an end to isolation” was broadcast on the BBC News Channel. I also work as a guest lecturer at the University College of London. 

What is your role working with See Change Films?
At See Change I’m mainly involved as an Editor and Workshop Facilitator.

Why did you get involved with See Change Films?
I believe that everybody should have the right to get their voices heard and I believe that documentary film is the perfect medium to achieve this. 

If you could change one thing, what would it be? 
I would really like to see an end to the staggering inequality that dominates the world today. So many people are given unfair chances and I feel we as a society should work harder together in caring for one another.
