With a career spanning almost 10 years in film having worked on projects for Amazon, Warner Bros, STARZ and more, in 2018 while searching for a creative way to tell an African folktale I stumbled upon VR as a storytelling tool and haven't looked back. I spent the last year working with Electric South as the Cultural Producer with a mandate to expand Immersive Storytelling on the continent, which included working with the incredible team laying the organisational ground work for the Electric Africa Festival.
