My current practice covers interdisciplinary storytelling and creative direction; mostly in relation to the spaces where art, design and performance media meet. Have a standing history and passion within the creative arts for grassroots organisations and pride myself in aiding brands and institutions develop strategy and programming that engages with audiences often facing barriers to entry and sustainability within the creative arts.
I support a wide variety of audio visual requests for internal and external clients within the museum, at times in a team but mostly unsupervised. Ranging from ADB theatre stage lighting, PA sound setups, film screenings, wireless conference microphone systems, interview recordings and live sound engineering. Fast paced and time critical this role greatly strengthened my problem solving ability to forecast tech issues before they developed.
A multifaceted and dynamic role within the digital media and publishing department at the V&A. In my time here I was responsible for creating a wide variety of multimedia content and digital media campaigns on and off site. Archiving close to 15 years of pre-existing video/motion media assets, whilst at the same time liaising with museum departments and curatorial staff to help script, produce and commission digital media for exhibitions, library archive and conservation. This role called on a wide range of skills and disciplines often in time critical situations, from photography to documentary film making, audio recording to post digital editing.
Podcast project for IdeasTap, a now closed arts charity that worked to inspire and support young creatives pursuing careers in the arts. With training from BBC radio 3 producer Ella Mai Robey, our team planned and produced monthly episodes, making location visits to artist studios and recording interviews with a number of key figures from Yinka Shonibare MBE, Self Publish Be Happy founder Bruno Ceschel, Independent columnist Rhodri Marsden and many more. This project required not only strong technical skills but also the ability to build rapport quickly, aid interviews setups and be open to feedback while working to client brief and editorials. I worked as the main editor and directed sound recordist on location. Additional responsibilities included researching ideas, writing questions, editing intros and outros.
One of europe's larges studio's for recording and mastering I worked as part of the evening reception and trainee assistant engineering team. I would be the first and last point of contact for artists, producers and guests visiting the studio, organising deliveries and studio safety. I was also tasked with sitting in on recording sessions, learning on the job, assisting with recording techniques and various studio maintenance care, from checking room temperatures for master tapes to equipment storage.
Currently on a experimental masters programme which is part industry, part learning. It's being supported by several art and design institutions and was founded by anthropology futures practitioner Stacey Woolsey.
