About me
I am someone who thrives within challenging and fast paced environments as a fierce and dedicated organiser and orchestrator. In my work, I am driven to create accessible and transformative spaces which can uplift alternative dialogues. In 2017, I co-founded the Feminist Internet Collective. Through the collective I have hosted and presented events at the Photographers Gallery, Somerset House and the IAM conference in Barcelona. I have recently coordinated, directed and hosted a four-part podcast series in collaboration with Somerset House studios on the theme of Recoding Spaces. I am the co-founder and editor of a music publication called Hook Journal- Which explores how music is made, how it is consumed, and what it does to us emotionally, socially and physically.

    Feminist Internet is a group of artists and designers working to advance internet equalities for women and other marginalised groups through critical practice. In this podcast series, the group explore the theme of Recoding Spaces, both online and offline, with the aim of diversifying internet spaces metaphorically, physically and digitally, intercepting homogenous zones and breaking the filter bubble. The podcast aims to not only expose these spaces, but to regenerate them in new and inclusive

Education
    Master of ArtsUniversity of The Arts London (UAL)
     - London, United Kingdom
    I studied Fashion Media Practice and Criticism at London College of Fashion. This integrated masters is an innovative course which draws on the disciplines of media and the cultural industries from both a practical and theoretical aspect. Inspiring its students to uphold the value of initiative and to always challenge the existing concepts and principles of the creative industry. My course has enabled me to become a rigorous critical thinker and develop a broad creative practice. I have developed skills in publishing, editorial and all aspects of image making. The course has also advanced my written skills both journalistically and academically, empowering me to become an independent and bold thinker, always striving to explore a road less travelled in ideas and understanding.
