He is interested in music, nature, concepts and collaboration.

For his project presented at Manchester's School of Arts Porstgraduate Show 2021, he created an animation called 'LOWDOWN OF THE LOCH: How to Spot a Monster'; a short film about how to locate other loch monsters around the Highlands, with a tip-by-tip guide presented by young "Loch-logger"Jess McKenzie. Inspired by the landscapes of Scotland, this digital 2D film was his attempt to create a scripted piece incorporating comedy and performance, while drawing on research and taking influence from his own experiences visiting there from a young age.
