About me

BA in Journalism from Goldsmiths, University of London. Final year of university was spent specialising in Drum and Bass and dance music history in the U.K. Aside from my studies at university I have spent my life moving between France, Italy and England leaving me with the capability of speaking the three languages fluently and a profound knowledge of each countries culture. Following my studies I began working on a documentary about the history of Drum and Bass, familiarising myself with many notable figures within the scene. However, I continue to maintain strong interests in popular culture, socio-cultural issues and visual arts.
