Queer drag performer, artist and moving image creator and have been working with and documenting the eclectic East London queer scene for the past five years. He graduated from University of the Arts London with a BA in Fine Arts (Print and Time-based media) and have since gone on to write and direct a series of my own films amplifying marginalised voices of in LGBTQI+ community. His first documentary project was entitled Drag is my Ecstasy, an intimate portrait of underground drag collective Sink the Pink, which was accepted into the program of the BFI Flare: London LGBT Film Festival in 2014 and screened at The East End Film Festival. Three of his short films centring on the LGBTQ+ lived experience have also been previewed on global arts video channel NOWNESS. In 2019 he directed ‘Il-Widna’ a reimagined reality of queer people banished from the UK after Thatcher’s Section 28 amendment. The film had its online premiere on i:D at the start of this year and has just been accepted into this year’s Fringe! Queer Film & Art Festival. Most recently he was selected as one of the 2020 FLAMIN artists.
