About me
My name's Alex. I'm a writer and digital polymath with a strong base skillset spread across design, communications/marketing, media production, copywriting, and digital project management. Like the Nigerian poet, Bayo Akomalafe, I believe the ordinary is what the extraordinary strives to accomplish. I'm currently seeking to align myself with a company dedicated to creating a better world through collaborative acts of imagination and enterprise. I'm also interested in applying design and storytelling principles toward social and systems transition. When I'm not cycling all over London or using Trello and Slack to organise most facets of my life, I'm (slowly) writing my fantasy trilogy, listening to 'technical funk' bank Vulfpeck on my prized Denon AH-D7000s, or visiting the ducks in Clissold Park.
