I am currently at a high 2-1 level, aiming to obtain a First Class Honours degree in June this year.
I have undertaken a number of intensive university projects, along with freelance work for friends and people at the university.
I have a wide range of experience with website design and production, having made websites for a number of my friends and various clients around the university. My current projects are working on websites for a well-known Documentary Filmmaker, Florence Ayisi and SYNPASE festival, a large-scale range of exhibitions in the Nottingham and Derby area.
I am also currently undertaking a large scale project entitled Upgrade to Film. For this, I have gathered together nearly 800 photographers on a Flickr group. I will be creating a series of books documenting various movements in modern-day film photography, through the use of my own images and those of the members of the group. So far, I have got in contact with around 50 photographers and have been granted rights to use their photos in the project. There will also be a website and exhibition in the university.
