I am an award-winning Producer/Project Manager with a background in Interactive Art. I am transitioning to be a Creative, staying within advertising and production. I believe in the power of technology, in its ability to give agency to users in a way that you cannot replicate with other mediums. I believe in the depth of the empathy you can achieve by transporting someone to view the world as another, or by bringing an unreachable experience to someone's phone. The fast pace of technological development drives my fervent curiosity and need to continuously learn. I believe in the need to stand by your creative vision and in being the motivation that drives a team to create something outstanding. Now I am looking to pour my enthusiasm into a digital creative role to bring my ambitious ideas to life.Locked Pro Plan feature
I ran a successful, profit-turning restaurant. Managing 8 staff and implementing new operational systems to create a smooth-running business
I work primarily at Somerset House as part of a team that installs and de-installs exhibitions. We work with both the exhibitions team and the events team, creating professional shows for large public consumption. I have gained experience in the infrastructure of a large institution. I learnt how to deliver high end finishes and how to handle artwork.
Working across a diverse range of digital platforms, I lead teams to produce award-winning content and managed never before done technological projects. Overseeing the creative production closely to ensure a high standard.
Assisted on a number of productions, arranging complex travel and overseeing task management
I was asked to give a talk as part of a series called SCREENS hosted by the LIMA Collection and SSBA Salon. The series paired young curators with young artists whose film work has recently become a part of the LIMA Collection. I interviewed Donna Verheijden about themes surrounding her work which explores feminism, identity and the internet.
I was asked to give a talk on protest and intervention. The talk was for the portfolio preparation short course. I gave a talk about intervention as a tool to create conflict, the political idea of agonism and McLuhan’s notion of anti-environments. The aim was to show intervention as a simple method for conveying and illustrating ideas.
This was a one-day exhibition which explored post digital futures, such as a post-screen world, while also showcasing the Information Experience Design course as a platform for research. I worked with the head of the course and a Ph.D. student to create a dynamic experience which reflected the network of ideas that surrounds the conversation on the future of technology. Speakers and attendees ranged from Régine Debatty to Jussi Ängeslevä.
I organised and curated an exhibition, mixing new media art with traditional sculpture to make a statement about the status of technology in contemporary practice. The show was made up of 23 internationally exhibiting artists who all had attended the Royal College of Art. The private view drew more than 300 people. The show was critically acclaimed by those that attended including the curator of the Liverpool Biennale and it generated positive press. I managed the whole project myself; including liaising with artists, galleries, designers and technicians and balancing the budget.
I acted as one of the key Curators for the School of Communication Final Show, this involved managing the needs of 112 students, working with the exhibition designers and overseeing the hire of equipment. This was a very high pressure situation, given the reputation of the RCA show, but I excelled in this role, working hard and meeting the deadlines.
Information Experience Design (IED) is an exciting new RCA programme about critical making and experimental design practice, encompassing data visualisation, installations and exhibitions, interface and experience design, making and hacking using a range of materials both physical and digital. We aim to make the intangible tangible and experiential, through interdisciplinary collaboration, contextual inquiry and creative practice.
