She holds an MA in Visual Anthropology from Goldsmiths University of London and BA Fine Art from Leeds Metropolitan University.
Chloë uses video within a variety of artistic, research-based and educational contexts, endorsing a self-critical, reflective and integrative process. She co-founded Kaleido Film Collective, a group of filmmakers and anthropologists who specialise in documentary, ethnography and creative social research projects.

Additionally she is co-director of Stretch New Media, a film production company that gives voice to the third sector and vulnerable groups and supports independent documentary and feature film projects.
With a keen interest in youth engagement, social justice and participatory media, she also delivers filmmaking workshops and training to schools, universities and community groups.
