I am an artist and filmmaker currently based in Cornwall. Primarily employing the use of moving image, my practice explores narrative in conjunction with place and social history, often re-contextualising these ideas within a modern context. In addition to this my work is often concerned with the act of looking and by extension, philosophies surrounding the camera itself. 

* Upon exploring my website you may be surprised with the lack of moving image content available to watch. This is for a number of reasons, most important of which being - the context in which my work is viewed. The films I make are often designed with a specific presentation in mind and should be experienced in this environment where possible.
