Originally from Dorset, I migrated to Bristol for a BAHons in Film Studies at UWE, and went to to study an MA in Documentary Practice at the University of Bristol. I am an avid reader, writer and watcher and I love to analyse and debate; a few of my favourite topics of late being: sustainability and civilisation crisis, the military-industrial complex, post-capitalism and redistribution of wealth, the contemporary challenges of feminism, gender construction and media representation. I live and work in the Stokes Croft area of Bristol, where I have a couple of part-time jobs that pay my rent, allowing me to spend the rest of my time writing, learning and enjoying.
