Tell us about yourself. What do you do for a living? What are your interests?

I’m a fashion print designer; I spend large fractions of my time scouring zines and the web for new sounds, new sights, new material – and devouring as much of that stuff as I can.

Describe the LomoKino in five words.

Make it seven – Total genius, can’t get enough of it

How did you like shooting with the LomoKino?

Once you’ve laid hands on it, there’s a good chance you won’t want for anything else!

What or who has inspired you to purchase and use the LomoKino?

I’ve always loved moving images and the immediacy of videos, how it hits you or captures a feeling or sentiment like no other. I guess it had a lot to do with growing up on a diet of MTV vids – I could watch endless streams of videos back to back, and for the longest time I was hung up on the stuff I saw on DazedDigital so then I thought yeah why not muck around and have a go at it.

Any funny or strange encounters you’ve had with it?

Grannies at the supermarket want a slice of the action but I tell them I’m doing a Larry Clark, so no octogenarians, haha!

If you could shoot any person alive or dead (or imaginary) with your LomoKino, who would it be and why?

Johnny Rotten’s enigmatic, I’d like to get into his head – and also get a sampling of his rants while at it.

Kindly share to us any LomoKino movie you love the most.

’Cos girls do it better! I kid, but it’s a neat video!

Any future plans with your LomoKino? More shoots or a full-length film perhaps?

I’d love to make a mock-umentary with it some time, or something like Pussy Riot’s Punk Prayer – that should be exciting

Your advice to future LomoKino users.

Drop your roll in bleach, for kicks.
