Hello! I’m Jasper. I’m a writer, blogger, filmmaker, photographer and podcaster. Here you’ll find a collection of my work, ranging from films and videos to photographs to essays.
I am an editor for The Social Review, a journal for new left-wing thinking which has attracted writing and interviews from across the Labour Party and the Liberal Democrats, in addition to academics, journalists, think tanks and MPs.
Chiefly, I am the producer and editor of The Social Review Podcast. New episodes are released weekly to an audience of hundreds, featuring current affairs analysis from members of the editorial team as well as interviews with a range of interesting people, such as Alex Sobel MP, Sarah Manavis of The New Statesman, political journalist and author Marie le Conte and Matthew Laurence of the economics think tank, Common Wealth.
I’m a former BBC Work Experience intern, having worked on important investigations within Watchdog and Rogue Traders, such as exposing illegal puppy farms and malpractice in Iceland.
In 2018 I starred in a historical comedy at the Edinburgh Fringe and Camden Fringe, Who Killed Franz Ferdinand?, produced by Slipshod Theatre. I’m back at the Fringe with Slipshod in 2019, this time serving as Director of Media.
I am the writer/director/producer of Tales from the Apocalypse, a feature-length sci-fi movie set during the end of the world starring an ensemble cast of up-and-coming young British actors. Currently under consideration for film festivals, Tales will be released on Amazon Prime in 2020.
I have a YouTube channel, home to over 500 subscribers and a variety of content encompassing video essays, sketches, vlogs and short films.
As of October 2019, I am studying Human, Social and Political Sciences at St John’s College, University of Cambridge. I’m deeply involved in Cambridge Theatre and film, co-directing the popular Cambridge Shorts showcase and writing, acting and directing across numerous different productions, ranging from panto to Chekhov. I also sit on the Lady Margaret Players Committee (the St John’s theatre society) as the Publicity Officer, organising weekly events during term time. Outside of theatre, I’m excited to become more involved in improving access to Cambridge for students from low-income backgrounds.
