EXPERIENCE
Currently working as Senior Photographer for the Cambridge University LibraryPast employers include the Ashmolean Museum (University of Oxford), British Library, Wellcome Collection, and Bespoke Archive Digitisation.
I regularly collaborate as a freelance Graphic Designer with the Four Corners gallery to curate their exhibitions catalogues.
In February 2022 I started teaching an evening course of Creative Photography at the Arbury Community Centre in Cambridge, because I wanted to instill my passion for photography in other people and provide my local community a chance to connect through creativity. 
In the personal practice, I am interested in how new media can interact with analogue productions, creating new visual interpretations and storytelling of old photographs, maps and curious objects.
