Designer in Folkestone, UK, He/Him
Civilian, interdisciplinary designer, and artist. Here is my body of work.
Building two client newsletters, the Shortform and Broadcast Editors Roundups, leading the project from brainstorming to design through to launch.
I co-produced four live webinars for Film & TV students. Through Q&As, panels, and masterclasses, I helped share the inspiring stories of filmmakers and industry professionals who discussed building new skills, film education, and employment.
Shot BTS photos and co-produced a digital campaign for a research project/short film by Uni of Greenwich Film & TV scholars and students. Outputs from the project raised awareness of Virtual Production in the future of the screen industries.
Working on a hybrid live event/virtual production alongside filmmakers and theatre experts, I designed a handy programme website for the event's audience, as well as the TEDx sign and two green-screen backdrops.
I coordinated a series of Covid-safe film screenings for Film & TV students. I also designed a custom logo and posters for each screening. Each film was followed by a Q&A to discuss the highlights and learnings. I loved working on these events because they mixed education and entertainment to capture students' interest (and increase attendance) at a time during the pandemic when engagement was at its lowest.
So far, I have helped Blueberry quadruple their emails' open rate and double their social media reach. I've also led a soft rebrand and made lots of original designs. I'm glad that my efforts here contribute towards the success of independent editors, designers, and artists.
I co-designed a major online hub and covid-safe protocol for Film & TV students that allowed them to keep making films during Covid. I also handled social media and set up some great remote classes with industry experts. It was pretty cool to work with some of the same people who taught me when I studied at Greenwich.
I helped curate, install, market, and deliver over 50 exhibitions and events across two years while coordinating the Galleries' digital marketing and assisting the Curator. It was truly one of the best student jobs I could have ever hoped for!
Cross-referencing mythology, pop culture, the supernatural, and digital selfhood, the works in this ZIP-compressed exhibition explore fears, desires, and obstacles artists face in times of crisis and isolation.
Curated by Magda Żołędź (of ONE Project) and I, the exhibition opened with an online event featuring artwork walkthroughs, studio visits, and Q&As.
This online exhibition and accompanying catalogue explore the impact of the internet and contemporary digital culture on the practice of emerging artists and curators. This was my major graduate project while at the University of Greenwich.
The exhibition featured works by Enes Alba, Atom Chen, Dario Bucheli, and Perce Jerrom. The catalogue includes an essay I wrote alongside Q&As with Lisa Barnard, Pita Arreola-Burns, Elliott Burns, Valentina Peri, Ghislaine Boddington, and Walter Corneli.
Co-curated with David Waterworth, this exhibition focused on four University of Greenwich graduates—John Joseph Watters, Grace Diggens, Marilia Lezou, and Rhiannon Ashley—working in cross-disciplinary fields that impact our environment and community.
A curated list of tools, resources, opportunities, and inspiration for artists and makers.
Started in 2020, this open channel is a gathering of ideas and stories that articulate unique views on belonging, home, what (and who) makes a home, and how to find meaning in living in-between homes.
It is now almost seven years since the Brexit referendum. And there is still uncertainty around the future UK-EU relationship. Recent surveys show that over 50% of people regret voting Leave. What better way to reflect on this cataclysmic event than doing so in front of a framed copy of the official ballot paper that initiated Brexit? Is Bregret setting in yet?

What’s your side hustle? Here's mine.
A micro invitation to lose yourself in the unspoken, this expanded poem encourages reflection on the intangible nature of time.
Web-based work incorporating poetry, photographs, and semi-generative audio-visual elements. These fragments reveal themselves as the user interacts - almost by instinct - with the browser's canvas. The work articulates personal sentiments about "home", what (and who) makes one, and how to find meaning living between homes.

Can re-framing social media content as a stream of consciousness tell the story of how it came to be?
Three Years contains all my tweets from April 2016 to February 2019 – more than a thousand entries. I presented the book at the opening of "528" (an exhibition I co-curated) where I performed an uninterrupted 2:30 hrs live reading.
A semi-autonomous program that generated and tweeted 500+ exhibition titles for fictional art exhibitions, from the hilarious to the grotesque. It tweeted daily for two years between 2018 - 2021.
Interactive web-work based on Clemens Meyer's homonymous story. The site guides you through extracts from the story, accompanied by corrupted sketches and a forklift spun in space. The whole is soundtracked by a music piece I composed to enrich the experience.
As a concert photographer for the webzine Getintothis, I captured shots of concerts in Liverpool and the Merseyside area. My gig photography portfolio includes artists like Nas, Idles, Real Estates, Tom Grennan, Nathan Fake, and Stealing Sheep.
I made and released music under the aliases of Mountain King and Young Offices. I did so for several years until 2017, when my creative practice expanded into other areas.
Exhibition catalogue, Q&As, and the opening essay "Playing to the Net".
Exhibition essay for "Feed Your Demons and Meet the Ally".
