I am a photographer and BIFA Award winning filmmaker based in London, who has a lifelong love affair with sport. My project, ‘Sunday Football’ was published by Hoxton Mini Press and featured globally in media such as BBC, The Sunday Times and Esquire.

I’m also the co-founder of the movement focused magazine and 200 episode podcast weMove – exploring the worlds of movement and health.

Prior to photography I spent several years in a Head of European Marking role for Indie record label Hassle records and produced the art show ‘Daydreaming with James Lavelle’ at Haunch of Venison gallery, Royal Academy of Arts, London.

My work is a reflection of my curiosity to understand the motivations that drive my subjects lives.
