Currently doing my masters at Bournemouth University 'Media School' in International Journalism. Lived in Bristol for three years doing my BA in Drama and Creative Writing at The University of the West of England (UWE). I was a Stage Manager and director for six months for the play 4:48 by Sarah Kane. Before this, I lived in Ramsgate, Kent where I practised my photography skills and writing by the sea.
