REEL

A showreel of my work.

TEA PARTY ENVIRONMENTALIST

I pitched this story to the Guardian. Debbie Dooley is co-founder of the Tea Party. She argues that promoting solar energy is entirely consistent with conservatism. I researched, filmed, edited this video.

DONALD TRUMP & THE FORGOTTEN WORKERS

I pitched this story to the Guardian in 2017. Workers at the Momentive chemical plant in Waterford, New York went on a 105 day strike over healthcare coverage. The dispute set them against Momentive’s owners including Donald Trump ‘jobs czar’, Stephen Schwarzman who is worth $11.1bn. I researched, filmed and edited this video.

THE FIGHT FOR $15

I researched, filmed and edited this short video profiling two low-wage workers from Boston and their Fight For $15 for the Guardian. An example of my work filmed and edited in a total of two days.

THINK DIFFERENTLY

Trasgender candidate Bharathi Kannamma ran in the 2014 Indian election asks the electorate to “think differently” when deciding for whom to vote. I pitched this story to the Guardian who ran it as part of their 2014 Indian election coverage. I researched, filmed, edited this video

SALOON

A glimpse inside Indian barbers-shops that I researched, filmed and edited in New Delhi. This lighthearted 3min short demonstrates that digital video can be compelling and fun while still providing viewers insight into the world around them.
