I am a filmmaker from London, based in Mexico City. I also previously lived in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 

Currently I am finishing a film as part of a fellowship with One World Media about Brazil's only Black and LGBT congressman, David Miranda as he fights to carry forward the legacy of his murdered friend and colleague, Marielle Franco, in Jair Bolsonaro's far-right congress. My other films include experimental and essay shorts which have screened at the Tate Exchange, ICA, South London Gallery and several small festivals. 

 

I was the researcher on The Art of Political Murdera feature documentary for HBO about the assassination of human rights icon Bishop Juan Gerardi in Guatemala in 1998, and was recently Assistant Producer on a film about precarious workers, trade unions and the gig economy in London, directed by Hazel Falck for The Guardian. I've worked as part of production and camera teams on projects for Al Jazeera, Netflix and Vice. I am fluent in Spanish and Portuguese and often work as a translator, and I can speak/write basic Arabic.  

My freelance journalism and photography has been published in outlets including Vice/ViceEnEspañol, Dazed & Confused, OpenDemocracy, New Internationalist and Novara Media.
