I’m a visual artist with a keen interest in society’s impact on us as individuals. I’m a former graduate of languages at Edinburgh University (French and German). I completed my postgraduate studies in Documentary Production at Salford University in 2002 and founded RipRoar Productions where I worked as a freelance documentary filmmaker delivering film projects in the Greater Manchester area to socially excluded young people and disadvantaged members of the community. I studied photography at L’Espace Jemmapes, Paris and Westminster College, London.

I am part of a collective looking at possessions and how they affect our identity. If you would like to get involved or find out more you can click here
