Born and raised between the mountains and the sea in North Wales- I have a gravity inside me that keeps pulling me out into the wilder spaces- this has rooted in me a love for it and an unshakable sense of responsibility to protect it. I currently live on a small windswept island off the coast of North Wales and work as a Warden.

 

I graduated from the Edinburgh Collage of Art with a Masters in Documentary Filmmaking in 2015. I spent the last three months of '15 living in Japan, working as a filmmaker for a charity in Tokyo, before spending 5 months of 2016 living and working on a remote island in North Wales, Ynys Enlli. Between 2017 and 2019 I worked for Cwmni Da production company based in Caernarfon, working on an array of television productions whilst also directing and producing my own short environmental films for the Welsh online platform, Hansh.

 

In 2017, I spent 6 weeks in Indonesia making a short documentary series about the effect of the Palm Oil industry on people, climate and biodiversity in the country. In June 2018, I joined a team of scientist in the Arctic to research and document the catastrophic plastic crisis there, and in 2019, I made a documentary discussing a rewilding project that had just begun in Ceredigion, mid- Wales and it's possible effect on the bio diversity and culture. 

After almost three years working in television, the opportunity arose to return to the island, and on the 22nd of September, 2019- I left my career and life on the mainland behind and started a new adventure with Emyr here on Enlli

I believe that there is power in creativity- and through my work, my writing and film I hope to reconnect people with the beauty and fragility of the natural world.
